Skin Cancer Center in Birmingham, Alabama
Early detection is the key to treating skin cancer
The number of skin cancer cases diagnosed in America each year is more than all other types of cancer combined. Fortunately, skin cancer is also the most treatable if the disease is caught early. You can protect yourself and your family with a proactive program of skin examinations to look for the signs and symptoms of skin cancer.
Skin Cancer Surgery & Treatments
Though anyone can get skin cancer, people with excessive exposure to ultraviolet radiation and lighter skin are at an increased risk. Skin cancer usually shows up on areas that get the most sun exposure, but can develop anywhere on the body.
The skin cancer center at Hedden & Gunn Plastic Surgery offers a full range of treatments for the three types of skin cancer — basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma and melanoma. If detected and treated early, almost all cases of skin cancer can be successfully removed. A plan for skin cancer treatment is determined for each patient at our Birmingham-Hoover, Alabama practice based on the type, size, depth and location of the growth or lesion.
