Treatment for a Variety of Skin Cancers

Early Detection Can Save Your Life

Skin cancer commonly appears on areas of the body that are frequently exposed to the sun. A few of the typical locations for skin cancer development are the: 

  • Ears
  • Scalp
  • Face
  • Lips
  • Neck
  • Legs
  • Chest
  • Arms
  • Hands

If you notice any strange growths, a change in the appearance or texture of a mole or a sore that does not heal within two weeks, make an appointment with a dermatologist.

Risk Factors for Skin Cancer

  • UV Exposure
  • Being Male
  • Having Light-Colored Skin
  • Previous Skin Cancer
  • Exposure to Radiation 
  • Weakened Immune System


The deadliest form of skin cancer, malignant melanoma can also form in places not usually exposed to sunlight such as the breasts, genitals, scalp, palms of hands and soles of feet. With this type of skin cancer, an existing mole may change or a new, suspicious-looking mole may develop.
