Skin Cancer Treatment

Mahoney Dermatology Specialists is proud to offer the latest, cutting edge skin cancer treatments for all of the common types of skin cancer including basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and malignant melanoma. Treatments may include surgical excision, which can be performed right here in the office under local anesthesia, along with curettage and fulguration (surgical scraping and burning of the lesion under anesthesia).

There are also topical creams containing either chemotherapeutic agents or immunomodulators which have been shown in some studies to treat early skin cancers or precancers. More invasive cancers may rarely require referral to a dermatologist with additional training in Mohs micrographic surgery, or an oncologist, oncologic surgeon, or radiation oncologist.
