Skin Cancer – Cancer Reconstruction – Philadelphia

Published on January 31, 2014 

Skin cancer is one of the most common types of cancer that is reported. Fortunately, in many cases, it is generally non-lethal and treatable. Typically, overexposure to UV rays from the sun or UV tanning beds are a major factor for increasing rates of cancer. If you work outside or live in areas with intense sun exposure, you are generally at a higher risk.

The most common appearance of skin cancer is basal cell cancer, which is a type of cancer that affects the lowest layer of the skin. Squamous cell cancer and melanoma are rarer but much more dangerous. Treatment for skin cancer is most effective when the condition is caught early. After treatment, reconstruction procedures are also available that can restore appearance and functionality of the skin. Contact a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Scott Brenman to determine your options.
