While most moles are harmless, early detection is vital when it comes to melanoma. Cancerous moles are the most common sign of the development of this skin disorder. The earlier these moles are detected, the better the treatment outcomes can be for individuals. If you live in Gwinnett County, cancerous mole treatment through Medical Dermatology Specialists in Lawrenceville can help you protect your health.

Melanoma Warning Signs and Symptoms

Excessive exposure to ultraviolet radiation from the sun is one of the largest factors in the development of melanoma. Using sunscreen and wearing protective clothing outdoors can decrease your risk. Individuals with fair skin can be at greater risk. It can be rare for men and women with darker skin to develop melanoma, but symptoms can be more aggressive when it happens. Genetics can also play a significant role.

Warning signs for melanoma can include any new or unusual changes on your skin. Changes to look for with moles include irregular borders, asymmetry and different shades of color. Other warning signs are sores that fail to heal, swelling and spread of pigment into surrounding skin. Melanoma can occur anywhere on the body, and even on your internal organs. Men commonly develop cancerous moles on the back, while women typically develop the condition on the legs.

Our Patient Reviews

Dr. Weisman was very professional, friendly, and engaged in conversation with terminology I would understand. Her beside manner was, quite frankly, surprising! It was one of the most comfortable visits I've ever experienced with a doctor.

I truly cannot express how thankful I am for this practice. I have been treated with kindness and immense care by every staff member I have encountered here. The nurses and assistants are beyond attentive and genuinely care for the patient. I have just received a treatment plan from Dr. Laura Biehl, and even if this particular treatment plan doesn't provide me relief, I am confident that Dr. Biehl will work to figure out a solution. She is extremely knowledgeable, listens to patient concerns, and takes time to answer patient questions. Dr. Biehl, and this practice are true gems. If you have any dermatological issues this practice is absolutely the best of the best.
