Skin cancer can be caused by a number of factors. The most common is exposure to ultraviolet radiation, which comes from the sun and tanning booths. It can form on any part of the body, but is most common on the face, head and neck. Although, some individuals are more prone to developing this form of cancer, it can affect anyone at any age. There are several different types of harmful skin cancer that, left untreated, can lead to severe disfigurement. Symptoms can be difficult to recognize and greatly depend on the type of cancer as well as the severity level. Patients should seek immediate medical attention at the first sight of any abnormal skin growth, discoloration, bumps, sores or white patches. Individuals should especially watch for the warning signs of melanoma, a particularly dangerous and life-threatening cancer. One way to diagnose skin cancer is to visit plastic surgeon, Dr. Gardner at Gardner Plastic Surgery, who will perform skin cancer removal on the affected skin and perform a biopsy. It is important to undergo skin cancer treatment with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gardner. He may use a number of methods to remove the tumor while preserving as much of the patient's tissue as possible. In case of disfigurement caused by the tumor, Dr. Gardner may utilize a reconstructive and/or cosmetic surgery to restore function as well as normal appearance.
