Actinic Keratosis (AK):

Precancerous proliferation that develops within sun exposed skin. AKs need further treatment. Options are cryotherapy (treatment with Liquid Nitrogen), creams, chemical peels, or lasers. If left untreated, they could evolve into Squamous Cell Carcinoma which are types of skin cancer. Please contact our office to schedule an appointment if you don’t already have one scheduled.

This is the most common type of skin cancer. Basal cell carcinoma occurs most often on areas of the skin that are exposed to the sun, such as your head and neck, but can be found on other sun-exposed areas. Most basal cell carcinomas are thought to be caused by long-term exposure to ultraviolet radiation from sunlight. This always requires further removal to insure margins are clear, so please contact the clinic to schedule an appointment.
