Of all techniques to remove skin cancer, Mohs micrographic surgery has the highest cure rate and minimizes the amount of healthy, undiseaded skin removed, as well as the extent of scarring.
This state-of-the-art treatment is a one day, outpatient surgery using local anesthesia which is generally reserved for use only with certain skin cancers. Those that are large, have recurred following conventional treatment, or those found in certain anatomic locations such as the central face are very effectively treated with Mohs micrographic surgery.
This thecnic is utilized most often for the treatment of basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and lentigo maligna (an early form of melanoma usually occurring on the face).
However, the Mohs surgery is also useful for other, less common forms of skin cancer, including sebaceous carcinoma, merkel cell carcinoma, atypical fibroxanthoma, microcystic adnexal carcinoma and dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans.
At times of high sun exposure, such as the summer, it is important to take steps to protect yourself.
Skin cancer rates have risen in recent years. Fortunately, however, the mortality rate for skin cancer has stabilised.
It is particularly important to protect children against the sun in order to prevent both the immediate negative effects and the possible consequences in later life.
Sunscreen is essential to keep our skin healthy, as it prevents sunburn, signs of ageing and skin cancer.
Sunlight is essential for life, and it benefits us in many ways. Although everyone needs exposure to sunlight, it is important to take suitable precautions.
The mission of our Skin Cancer Prevention Program, IDERMA Prevent, is to increase public awareness regarding the dangers of over exposure to sunlight and the practice of sun-safety behaviors and to decrease future incidence of new cases of skin cancer among our patients.
IDERMA is very experienced in treating skin cancer, a disease in which malignant cancer cells form in the tissue of the skin.
