Skin cancer affects over two million men and women in the United States each year. Early detection is critical for treating this disease. Skin cancer treatment in Gwinnett County at the Medical Dermatology Specialists clinic in Lawrenceville can help you prevent and detect skin cancer through regular screenings.

Skin Cancer Screening

A skin cancer screening can take approximately 15 minutes to perform. During the screening, our dermatologist will check for birthmarks, moles and unusual markings. Skin cancer screening is available at the Lawrenceville Medical Dermatology Specialists clinic in Gwinnett County for:

Skin Cancer Symptoms and Signs

Signs and symptoms of skin cancer can include oozing or bleeding moles or skin marks. Any moles that have irregular borders, are painful to the touch or fail to heal may signify the presence of cancer. If skin cancer is suspected, the mole may be removed through a biopsy and sent to a lab for further testing.

A simple way to help identify the signs and symptoms of skin cancer is to use the ABCDE method. The letter A stands for asymmetrical moles and B is for borders that are irregular. The letter C stands for color that changes or is not uniform in a mole and D looks for a diameter growing larger. The letter E stands for evolving spots different from the rest.

Skin Cancer Risk Factors

According to the American Cancer Society, risk factors for skin cancer include a fair complexion, excessive exposure to ultraviolet radiation and a family history of skin cancer. Individuals who experienced severe sunburns at a young age or have multiple or atypical moles can be at a higher risk. Occupational exposure to toxic chemicals can also put you at a greater risk.

With early detection through skin cancer screening, the survival rate is approximately 99% for individuals.

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.

Waquele H.
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.
