Skin Cancer Treatment in Fort Lauderdale

Basal Cell Carcinoma Treatment

The Top Basal Cell Carcinoma Specialists

Nearly 1 in every 5 Americans develops basal cell carcinoma.

Although the condition itself is rarely fatal, basal cell carcinoma can spread beneath your skin, degrading the surrounding tissues and bones. These growths, often misdiagnosed as warts, do not typically go away on their own.

At Galt Dermatology, our physicians recommend that you schedule a skin cancer treatment in Fort Lauderdale as soon as you’ve noticed a persistent, and possibly painful, bump. Our board-certified dermatologists will thoroughly remove the affected skin, preventing the growth of basal cell carcinoma.

What is Basal Cell Carcinoma?

Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is a form of cancer that develops over time as tumors beneath the surface of your skin—in the epidermis. When your skin is consistently exposed to UV rays without protection, your skin loses its ability to heal properly and is unable to fight off basal cell carcinoma.

The growths may vary in color and size but are most often seen as a skin-colored bump with visible blood vessels, a brown spot similar to a mole, or a rough, reddened scar covered by a light film.

What Basal Cell Carcinoma Treatments Address

With any form of skin cancer treatment in Fort Lauderdale, it is important to note that your wound may take up to 6 weeks to heal. Depending on the treatment, your doctor will provide detailed aftercare directions to streamline healing, reduce scarring, and reduce your risks of developing BCC in the future.
