Hearing a diagnosis of "cancer" is very difficult. Skin cancer often develops on areas of your body which are exposed to sunlight and therefore visible. Understanding that treating your skin cancer may cause visible scars or disfigurement is troubling.
Although no surgery can be performed without some type of scarring, plastic surgery ensures that the scarring is the best possible scar for the location and size of the skin cancer. Dr. Jandali understands your concerns with the diagnosis of skin cancer and will coordinate with your dermatologist to have the cancer removed and the resulting defect reconstructed. Special techniques are used to reconstruct the area after the skin cancer is removed by your dermatologist or Dr. Jandali himself.
The most common types of skin cancer are basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and melanoma. These can all be treated by Dr. Jandali, as well as precancerous lesions such as atypical nevi. He will explain the process to you and will guide you through treatment.
