Dermatologist, Dr. Peyman Ghasri, Offers Treatment for Various Types of Skin Cancer
LOS ANGELES, March 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Dermatologist, Dr. Peyman Ghasri, offers treatments for various types of skin cancer. Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer in the United States today. In fact, half of all those who live beyond 65 will suffer from some form of skin cancer. Early diagnosis offers the best prognosis for skin cancer treatment, but options are available to treat the various stages and types of cancer based on the patient’s needs and the cancer’s location.
There are three primary types of skin cancer: squamous cell skin cancer, basal cell skin cancer and melanoma skin cancer. Squamous cell skin cancer and basal cell skin cancer are the most common types of skin cancer. Melanoma is the deadliest skin cancer. Although anyone can be affected by skin cancer, it is most common in people with fair skin, light hair colors and light eye colors and people who have a history of excessive sun exposure or who work outside. It most frequently occurs in parts of the body that are more likely to receive UV exposure.
Los Angeles skin doctor, Dr. Ghasri, offers both surgical and non-surgical treatment options for skin cancer. Surgical excision, electrodessication and curettage, cryosurgery and laser surgery are all available. Dr. Ghasri is a specialist in Mohs micrographic surgery, a special surgical technique that allows the dermatologist to remove the entire tumor while leaving healthy tissues intact as much as possible. Other treatment options can include photodynamic therapy, radiation therapy and topical chemotherapy products. Visit http://www.castlederm.com for more information.
