All three of the commonest types of skin cancer (Basal Cell Carcinoma, Squamous Cell Carcinoma and Malignant Melanoma) are increasing in incidence. These cancers are almost always treated by surgical removal. Early detection for all of these cancers is associated with the highest cure rate.

Dr. Alanen offers Complete Skin Review, a comprehensive skin cancer screen) a comprehensive overview of your skin. This includes examination of any suspicious lesions with a polarized light dermatoscope. If it is deemed ideal based on significant sun damaged noted during the CSR, three dimensional photography with the cutting edge Vectra system will be recommended.
