One in 5 Americans will develop skin cancer during their lifetime. Of those diagnosed, 2.5% are children and adolescents. Those are jaw-dropping statistics. Skin cancer has become an epidemic in the United States. According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, over 5 million cases of skin cancer are diagnosed in the U.S. per year, making skin cancer the most common form of cancer. The most diagnosed forms of skin cancers are:

  • Basal cell carcinoma
  • Squamous cell carcinoma
  • Melanoma

Melanoma occurs less frequently than the others, but is significantly more lethal. On average, melanoma kills one person every hour in the U.S. However, skin cancers are highly curable when found in their earliest stages. This is why, at Oak Dermatology, we place the utmost importance on a yearly skin cancer exam. Since not all skin cancers look alike, and some may not have the most typical characteristics of skin cancer, it is pertinent that you are screened by a board-certified dermatologist who can provide you with fast treatment and resolution should any cancerous areas arise.

During a skin exam, our skin cancer specialists will examine your entire body, including your scalp and feet. He or she may use a dermatoscope to get the closest look possible at the characteristics of any moles or spots that may look suspicious. A dermatoscope can also magnify pigmentary patterns. If any further suspicious areas or growths are found, your provider may proceed to perform a quick and painless biopsy in order to look at the skin under a microscope to see the exact composition of the suspicious lesion. The physicians and providers at Oak Dermatology have treated thousands of skin cancers each year. Top-ranked dermatologists Dr. Jeffrey T.S. Hsu and Dr. Ashish Bhatia, are both internationally recognized experts in dermatologic surgeries, including Mohs surgeries. Both Dr. Hsu and Dr. Bhatia specialize in Mohs microscopic surgery, which offers the best cure rate and cosmetic results in the treatment of non-melanoma skin cancers. Oak Dermatology also has extensive experience in post-operative treatment of any residual scars in order to achieve the best possible final result.

First visit for total skin check. The assistsnt and staff were exceptional. So nice and helpful. Dr Fang was fantastic. I've had these exams for over 40 years and dreaded them all. Dr Fang made me comfortable and calm from the start. She and her assistant were extremely thorough, explaining everything they examed, answering all my questions and intently listening to my past history. I am so happy they were recommended to me after my longtime Dermatologist moved to another state. Already have my appointment for next year. Thank you all for making this a very good experience.
