Skin cancer is diagnosed in over 5.4 million people annually. As a visible disease, the early signs of the cancer can be seen. For patients in New York, NY, Dr. Ariel Ostad encourages early detection for diagnosis and treatment of skin cancer.
There are different types of skin cancer. Each has varying levels of severity and invasiveness. There are three most common forms of skin cancer.
Dr. Ostad is a board-certified dermatologist and one of New York’s premier Mohs surgeons. His precise techniques and attention to detail make him a sought after dermatologist. Mohs micrographic surgery involves removing skin tissue one layer at a time and examining it for cancer cells. If cancer is present, the next layer is removed and examined. If the tissue is clear, the area can be surgically closed and reconstructed if necessary. With a high cure rate, Mohs surgery is a good treatment for skin cancer. The minimal amount of tissue is excised to preserve delicate skin tissue while effectively eliminating cancer.
Skin cancer is treatable when caught early. If you have a suspicious lesion or have already received a skin cancer diagnosis, contact our office today to schedule your appointment with Dr. Ostad. (646)798-9494
