Studies have said that over 70,000 cases of melanoma will be diagnosed in the year 2016. This number is high, and what becomes even more alarming is that this Melanoma only accounts for one percent of skin cancer forms. Of these 70,000 people who are diagnosed, roughly 10,000 people will die of this form of skin cancer.

At Azeal Dermatology Institute we understand how important it is to be aware of skin cancer cases early on, and that’s why we offer diagnosis of precancers and skin cancer as well as guidance with methods of treatments to suit your diagnosis.

What happens during a skin diagnosis?

During your skin diagnosis, we will take a sample of your skin and place it in a formula that will help us determine if any infection is present. The sample will be taken from the general area or from the growth that you are in question of, making the chances of detecting any infection or cancerous cells extremely straightforward.

What happens after a skin diagnosis is completed?

Depending on the diagnosis of your skin sample, we will proceed with the proper forms of treatment. If your sample shows signs of skin cancer, we will choose the treatment that is created specifically for your diagnosis and schedule a time to take care of it.

If there is any part of skin that you’re concerned about, don’t let it go unsettled. Schedule an appointment at Azeal Dermatology Institute and let one of our knowledgeable dermatologists take a sample of your skin. The sooner that you determine whether or not the sample is concerning, the sooner you can schedule your treatment.
