What is skin cancer treatment?

Skin cancer treatment is actually a family of procedures used to treat skin cancer, ranging from surface treatments and minimally-invasive approaches to surgical intervention. There are different risks and benefits of each procedure, and the best solution will be selected based on the type, location, and stage of your skin cancer. Leading dermatologist Dr Jay Mehta has been serving Surprise and Phoenix, AZ with cutting-edge skin care for years. At Arizona Skin Institute, we offer a wide variety of therapies that can help to eradicate skin cancer.
