Free Skin Cancer Screenings at Mid-Atlantic Skin



 

Free Skin Cancer Screenings in Maryland

 
Several reports on skin cancer show the best results with Superficial Radiation Therapy (SRT), chemotherapy, immunotherapy, integrative and alternative treatments for skin cancer.
 
Mid-Atlantic Skin of Waldorf, Maryland offer FREE Skin Cancer Screenings and solutions for major forms of skin cancer, including:
 
• Malignant melanoma (MM)
• Basal cell carcinoma (BCC)
• Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC)
 
Skin cancers are on the rise. Patients should be aware that the sun kills skin cells. Many cancers of the skin are at most, locally problematic, and although they can be disfiguring they are seldom deadly.
 
The biggest exception to this rule is malignant melanoma. Melanomas are tumors that come from pigmented moles found on the body or face. In fact, melanomas are among the most highly malignant of all cancers. They are able to grow or metastasize to any part of the face and body.
 
This melanoma cancer has been found in the brain and even on the spinal cord. Melanoma has even been known on occasion to spread from a pregnant mother to child via fetus. Dr. George Verghese and his team at Mid-Atlantic Skin can help prevent serious issues from occurring through free skin cancer screenings in Maryland.
 
Melanoma’s are relatively uncommon, but the incidence has been rising rapidly. In the early 1930’s, for example, only one American in 2,000 developed a melanoma on the skin. These patient numbers have risen sharply during the late 1980’s and throughout the 1990’s.
 
In 1995 there were 32,000 documented cases in the United States. The most recent figures now stand at over 76,000 new documented cases per year. That number had doubled what it was 20 years ago, with over 10,000 deaths in the United States!
 
Non-melanoma skin cancer (BCC and SCC) is among the most common form of human cancer. There are an estimated 3,000,000 plus US cases per year. This number is higher than the combined incidence of breast, prostate, lung and colorectal cancer.
 
The majority of the skin cancers we see are basal cell carcinomas (BCC). The incidence of these continues to rise in Maryland, Virginia and Washington DC. The other common cancer found at our practice is the squamous cell carcinomas (SCC).
 
The frequency of skin cancer cases rising is due to the increasing age of the US population. This shift in the aging population and the increasing amount of leisure time–spent with either natural sunlight or even artificial ultraviolet (UV) exposure results in skin cancer.
 
Skin cancer can also be expensive and costly if not identified or treated. That is why free skin cancer screenings are so important. Medicare alone spends $15 billion each year on the treatment of skin cancer care treatments.
 
Treating both SCC and BCC skin cancers will greatly improve the widespread acceptance of Moh’s microsurgery. This is the gold standard of cancer treatments. Mohs surgery is widely available, accepted and Dr. George Verghese is a widely recognized expert in this procedure.
 
For patients with at risk deformities due to surgery on the face, neck, or body, Mid-Atlantic Skin offers non-surgical options, like our highly recommended Superficial Radiation Therapy (SRT).
