Skin cancer is an illness where cancerous cells (malignant) are found in the outer layers of the skin.
The most common sign of skin cancer is a change in the skin´s appearance such as a growth or a wound that does not heal. Sometimes there can be a small protuberance- it can be smooth, shiny, waxy reddish, brown or black.
In the first visit, Dr González Fontana will examine the lesion and make a diagnosis by a biopsy. Once the results of the biopsy are known, one can proceed with the treatment, bearing in mind that the majority of non- melanomic skin cancers can be cured, depending on the recuperation, the treatment and the type of skin cancer.
If you are considering an operation for skin lesions, you will find all the necessary information about the surgery and the expected results at the Dr González Fontana Institute.
