Here at the Rendon Center, your health is always our top priority. Skin cancer is treated with the utmost care, compassion, and of course, expert skill. We believe that cancer screening and treatment are among the most important services we provide. When you have a full body check-up, a member of our "Eagle Eye" dermatology team will perform an evaluation. Drawing from our extensive training and years of experience, we can quickly identify those lesions that are cause for concern. Any potentially cancerous lesion will be tested and evaluated by one of our dermatopathology specialists.
If the lesion is malignant, we provide a customized treatment plan, depending on the type of cancer, as well as its size, shape, and location. We will evaluate your current health and review your medical history to ensure that you receive safe and effective treatment.
Many cancerous lesions can be removed in a simple procedure, with a scalpel. Because skin cancer typically extends beyond the visible portion, additional tissue is removed. Following surgery, the removed tissue will be sent to our specially trained pathologist for evaluation. If cancerous cells are discovered in the borders, a second procedure will be needed. If the borders are clear, the process is complete.
Complicated or cosmetically sensitive cancers may be treated with Mohs Micrographic Surgery. This is a highly specialized treatment, removing the cancer one layer at a time. Each thin layer is evaluated by your surgeon at the time of removal. This means that we know exactly how much tissue to remove, and there is no need to sacrifice healthy tissue. Mohs has superior cosmetic results and a higher cure rate in most cases. Recurring or highly aggressive cancers may also be treated with Mohs.
