Mooresville Dermatology Center offers full-body screenings for the diagnosis and treatment of skin cancer as well as effective preventative care. Symptoms of skin cancer may vary which is why it is important to see a dermatologist when you notice a new growth or changes in existing moles on the skin. Early diagnosis is critical to the successful treatment of skin cancer. We recommend annual screenings.
Mooresville Dermatology Center offers photodynamic therapy, a highly effective medical treatment for precancerous cells, and certain types of skin cancer. Photodynamic therapy offers selective tissue destruction using a drug activated by light exposure. The result is an activated oxygen molecule that can destroy nearby problem cells.
Mooresville Dermatology Center dermatologists are specially trained to perform thorough whole-body mole and skin growth checks to detect and treat skin cancers such as basal cell carcinomas, squamous cell carcinomas, and melanomas. Moles are brown or black growths, usually round or oval that can appear anywhere on the skin. Most moles are harmless, but a change in size, shape, color, or textures can be indicative of cancerous cell growth. We recommend annual checks to monitor any changes.
