Melanoma is the most aggressive type of skin cancer, as it is fast-growing. Therefore, it’s important to diagnose melanoma as early as possible with mole mapping.
What Is Mole Mapping?
Mole mapping is a modern and effective way to detect skin cancer early. At Hollywood Dermatology & Cosmetic Specialists, our team of doctors uses mole mapping by taking microscopic pictures of your moles to keep track of your growths and how they look. Mole mapping is continued to be used for every visit, allowing our doctors to see any changes to your moles, no matter how minor the differences are.
Mole Mapping Is The Future Of Detecting Melanoma
Because mole mapping is the most advanced method for detecting skin cancer early, it has many benefits. These advantages include painless and consistent mole checks, less invasive as you can view your moles with our doctors on a screen, and growths are detected exceptionally early. Additionally, you won’t need to worry about having unnecessary surgeries to remove benign moles.
How Is Skin Cancer Treated?
At Hollywood Dermatology & Cosmetic Specialists, we use a technique called Mohs surgery to remove skin cancer from the body. Mohs surgery is the most cosmetically favorable skin cancer removal option and works by eliminating the areas containing cancer without removing any unnecessary tissue. This technique is perfect for getting rid of lesions on the face as this area does not have a lot of extra skin.
Another method to treat melanoma is to remove the areas of the skin cancer, including the edges, to ensure that the skin is free of any tumor cells. This method works well for people who are at high risk and have detected skin cancer early. Additionally, radiation therapy and tumor freezing are methods to control it, but it isn’t a way to entirely remove cancer.
