Procedures: Skin Cancer Screening

Skin cancer is highly curable when identified in its earliest stages. Skin cancers are classified as melanoma when arising in moles and non-melanoma when not associated with moles. Non-melanoma skin cancers such as basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinomas are among the most prevalent forms of cancer.

The physicians at Union Square Laser Dermatology are board certified dermatologists who have each identified and treated several thousand skin cancer cases. Dr. Chapas and Dr. Chwalek are fellowship trained dermatologic surgeons and specialize in the use of Mohs micrographic surgery to treat non-melanoma skin cancers and are nationally recognized as top Mohs surgeons. In addition, Union Square Laser Dermatology has extensive experience in post-operative treatment of any residual scars from excisions or Mohs surgery, to achieve the best possible final result. More information on skin cancer can be found on Dr. Chapas’s Huffington Post blog.
