Early diagnosis and treatment of skin cancer has been one of the most important progresses in dermatology in the past decades.
Dr. Monique Stengel is an expert in early detection and treatment of skin cancer.
Skin cancers include for example squamous cell carcinoma, basal cell carcinoma, and melanoma. Basal cell carcinoma is the most common type. It usually grows slowly and stays localized. It often occurs on sun-exposed skin and is usually curable, especially if treated early.
Another type of skin cancer is the squamous cell carcinoma or the melanoma.
Malignant melanoma is the most serious type of common skin cancer. Early detection and immediate intervention by a dermatological surgeon are the best treatment for melanoma.
