Skin cancer is a common and potentially dangerous cancer affecting millions of people each year. It occurs when skin cells develop mutations and grow out of control, forming a tumor. While skin cancer can occur anywhere on the body, it is commonly found in areas exposed to the sun, such as the face, neck, arms and legs.
The most common symptoms of skin cancer include changes in the size, shape, color, or texture of a mole or other skin lesion. A new or growing lesion that is asymmetrical, has an irregular border, is multicolored, or is larger than a quarter of an inch should be evaluated by a doctor. Our team will help you develop a plan and work with you through necessary follow-up.
New or existing patient appointments for evaluations can be made by calling the surgery department at (309) 344-1000.
