How is skin cancer diagnosed and treated in dermatology?

Skin cancer remains the most common type of cancer worldwide. Skin cancer screenings are essential to detect early signs of cancer, such as abnormal moles, slow-healing sores, and pink, red, or white lesions.

This thorough screening is a head-to-toe exam. Your dermatologist uses a dermatoscope (magnifying glass) to view every inch of your skin, from your scalp, ears, and neck to the spaces in between your toes.

If your dermatologist identifies an abnormal growth, they may take a skin biopsy or remove the lesion altogether. They send the sample to a lab for a proper diagnosis.

Treatment for skin cancer depends on the type. The three most common types are basal cell carcinoma (BCC), squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), and melanoma. While BCC typically responds well to excisional removal, SCCs are more invasive and may require Mohs micrographic surgery. Melanoma is the most aggressive type and usually requires surgery.
