Skin cancer treatment from your Jupiter dermatologist designed around your needs
Skin cancer may come in a variety of types, each with its own degree of seriousness. Because it can be difficult to determine the ultimate effect a suspicious lesion will have, seeking a professional evaluation right away is important. Ideally, a skin cancer
consultation will lead to prompt treatment
, allowing you to put fears to rest. Early detection and treatment from your Jupiter
dermatologist is vital to the best outcome, both in terms of cosmetics and overall health.
Choosing your doctor for skin cancer treatment
The care provider with whom you work to detect and remove any type of skin cancer is important on at least two levels. Your physical health is in the hands of the doctor you choose, as is the cosmetic outcome of treatment. On an emotional level, you want to know your doctor is hearing your concerns, understanding your fears, and willing to explain not only the details of your diagnosis but also of your treatment as well. At a Center for Dermatology, Cosmetic and Laser Surgery, you will not be forced to choose one or the other.
Dr. Vitulli and our team of professionals maintain the common commitment to serve patients’ needs with the utmost care. Our patients are our priority, and we place a great deal of importance first on hearing your needs, and then on providing the care that will enable you to feel comfortable and confident. Dr. Vitulli has completed extensive training, including the Mohs surgical procedure, for the treatment of skin cancers.
Diagnosing and treating skin cancer
Skin cancer may be detected during a routine skin evaluation in our Jupiter dermatology practice. Confirmation of skin cancer is made through biopsy, in which suspicious tissue is removed and examined in a lab.
If a skin cancer diagnosis is made on suspicious tissue, treatment options are discussed in depth. Dr. Vitulli approaches the design of treatment with great precision to facilitate the best outcome. Factors that are taken into consideration when planning skin cancer treatment include the type of cancer, the size, location of the lesion, the rate cells are multiplying, and the overall health of the patient. Most cancerous lesions will be removed in a surgical procedure.
Dr. Vitulli is experienced in the various techniques for skin cancer treatment, including topical medication, standard excision, and Mohs. If you are concerned that a mole or lesion may be cancerous, a consultation with your dermatologist will ease your fears.
