We Specialize in
Detection and Treatment of Skin Cancer
Doctors diagnose about 5.4 million cases of basal cell and squamous cell carcinoma (the most common types of skin cancer) in the U.S. each year. In addition, there are about 76,000 new melanoma cases every year, and more than 10,000 deaths from it.
Detecting skin cancer early, when it’s almost always curable, is the key. Treating early stage skin cancers helps reduce health care costs while saving lives.
We recommend that all people examine their skin each month, head to toe, to look for new or changing spots, moles or non-healing sores that might be precancerous or cancerous. Seeing your Dermatologist at least once a year is advised by the American Academy of Dermatology.
Mohs surgery is a highly specialized and precise treatment for skin cancer in which the cancer is removed in stages, one tissue layer at a time. Learn more about Mohs Surgery at Dermatology & Skin Cancer Center of New Mexico.
