Melanoma is one of the most prevalent forms of cancer and most commonly results from overexposure to the sun. While these strange patches of skin appear small, they become dangerous when left untreated. If you notice one of the ABCDE’s in a mole, it’s time for a checkup:
● Odd or Undefined Borders
● Strange Color
● Large Diameter
● Evolving or Growing Mole
These symptoms should not be taken lightly. Regular skin exams by a professional can be life-saving. We can help you prevent, detect and treat all forms of skin cancer.

What is Mohs Surgery?
Mohs surgery is one of the most effective techniques for treating common skin cancers. It's commonly used in treating basal cell carcinomas and squamous cell carcinomas. The procedure is done in stages and includes lab work in between to allow for the highest cure rate. The procedure helps to spare healthy tissue and leave the smallest possible scar.
