Skin Cancer Conditions:

Know Your Risks and Treatment Options at Phoenix Skin Cancer Clinic

Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States. While concerning, early detection and treatment significantly improve the chances of a successful outcome. At Phoenix Skin Cancer Clinic, our experienced team is dedicated to helping you identify potential risks, understand different skin cancer types, and explore treatment options.

Types of Skin Cancer We Diagnose & Manage:

  • Basal Cell Carcinoma (BCC): The most common type, BCC usually appears on sun-exposed areas like the face, neck, and arms. It typically appears as a pearly or waxy bump, but other presentations exist. Early detection and treatment are highly effective.
  • Squamous Cell Carcinoma (SCC): Another common type, SCC often develops on sun-exposed areas and can also form in areas like the scalp or genitals. It may appear as a rough, red, scaly patch or a bump that bleeds easily.
  • Melanoma: The least common but most serious form of skin cancer, melanoma can develop anywhere on the body. It’s crucial to be familiar with the signs, which can include an irregularly shaped mole with uneven borders and color variations. Early detection is critical.
