What is Skin Cancer?

Proper education regarding skin cancer can help you prevent and fight against cancer. There are many types of skin cancer, but all share the commonality of uncontrolled skin cell growth. Skin cancer occurs when something in the environment triggers genetic mutations or defects that prompt your skin cells to rapidly multiply and form tumors. The treatment path for skin cancer depends on the type of cancer and how far the disease has progressed.

Basal cell cancer
The most common type of skin cancer, basal cell carcinomas develops in the basal cells of your skin, located in the deepest layer of your epidermis. They rarely spread and respond very well to treatment given by a skin cancer specialist.

Squamous cell cancer
This is the second most common type of skin cancer and occurs in the outermost layer of your epidermis. If allowed to grow without treatment, squamous cell carcinomas can become disfiguring.

This is the most dangerous type of skin cancer. Left untreated it can spread into the deeper layers of your skin and eventually to other parts of your body. Early detection is the key to successfully treating melanoma.

Early detection, education, prevention, and advanced-technology skin cancer treatment helped Safe Health PC to become the leading skin cancer and dermatology center in Michigan to fight all forms of skin cancer.

Causes of the Skin Cancer Helps in Finding Better Treatments, What causes skin cancer?

The primary cause of all types of skin cancer is exposure to ultraviolet rays, whether from the sun or from sources like tanning beds. Your risk level rises every time you experience blistering or peeling sunburn. Whenever you get sunburn do visit your nearest dermatology and skin cancer center to consult the specialist.

People with light skin and eyes have an elevated risk of skin cancer, but even those with darker skin can develop the disease. Those who work outdoors have higher rates due to years of UV exposure. There is also a genetic component to skin cancer, so if you have a family member with skin cancer, particularly melanoma, you should consider making an appointment with a skin cancer specialist in Mount Pleasant, Dr. Fatteh for a diagnostic exam.

Signs of Skin Cancer to look for

Besides seeing your skin cancer specialist regularly for screenings, it is essential to know for what else to look and be careful of at home. If you see an alteration in the mole such as crusting, prolonged itchiness, change in shape or size, or you have a sore on the body that is not healing, immediately consult your skin cancer dermatologist.

Knowing each and every skin cancer sign could be helpful when you check for them by yourself.

  • Irregular mole
  • Mole with unclear or blurry edges
  • Mole which is uneven color

Once the skin cancer is detected, Skin Cancer Dermatologist at Safe Health PC then works with the patient to design a customized treatment plan.

Best Skin Cancer Treatment in Lansing and Mount Pleasant, Michigan

How is skin cancer treated?

Treatments vary depending on the type of skin cancer, the location on your body, and how far the disease has progressed. Dr. Fatteh, MD, renowned Skin Cancer Dermatologist in Lansing has a wide range of treatment options to choose from, and he can explain which methods offer the best chance of eliminating your skin cancer.

  • Some cancers can be removed using liquid nitrogen to freeze away damaged tissue.
  • Excisional surgery is another option, which works by simply cutting away cancerous tissues. Mohs surgery is a good approach for basal and squamous cell cancers; this works by removing incredibly thin layers of tissue and using a microscope to look for abnormal cells until a healthy layer of tissue is reached.
  • A powered blade or electrical current can also remove cancerous tissue.
  • Laser therapy is sometimes a good option, and there are even biologic therapy options that harness the power of your own immune system to destroy cancer cells.

Dr. Fatteh designs a treatment plan to meet your specific needs. He thoroughly explains the process at every step along the way.

Safe Health PC is outstanding! I visited there with challenging and old acne that was not getting cured! I tried many other skin doctors in Lansing and their medications did not work at all. In fact my acne got even worse. Their treatment was very effective and my acnes start reducing. My skin is looking great again. Their prices are very reasonable for the amazing care I got!
I would definitely recommend Safe Health PC. I got my Botox treatment done from this clinic and it was perfect. Dr. Fatteh gave me all the information regarding the procedure. The procedure was a success and the results were amazing. My skin looks younger now and wrinkles are gone. I am definitely looking forward to my next sitting.
