Dermatologist Recommendations for Skin Cancer Prevention
Early skin cancer detection can save lives. The American Cancer Society recommends a cancer-related checkup, including a complete skin examination every 3 years if you are aged 20 to 40 years, and every year if you are aged 40 or older.
Doctors and patients each have a unique role in finding skin cancer. For this reason, doctors at Summit Medical Group recommend a skin examination at every routine checkup. They also educate their patients and encourage them to be aware of changes in their skin.
Mohs Surgery for Skin Cancer
If you have skin cancer and need to have it removed, we offer the latest in surgical techniques to manage and cure skin cancer with the least damage to healthy tissue.
Mohs micrographic surgery is considered the single most effective technique for removing skin cancer, including basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma. An extremely precise method, Mohs micrographic surgery allows surgeons to remove a thin layer of tissue and examine it during rather than after surgery. As a result, surgeons know exactly when tissue is free of cancer cells so that healthy tissue is not removed unnecessarily.
Summit Medical Group patients in Northern New Jersey and the New York Metropolitan area also have access to enhanced cancer treatment, as part of our partnership with the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. This program, which provides medical oncology, infusion and diagnostic imaging, is already in place at Summit Medical Group’s flagship campus at 1 Diamond Hill Road in Berkeley Heights. It includes MD Anderson’s world-renowned treatment protocols, extensive clinical trials and cutting-edge research.
