Skin Cancer

Skin Cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States. More than 500,000 new cases are reported each year and the incidence is rising faster than any other type of cancer. About 80% of skin cancers appear on the face, head or neck where they can be both disfiguring as well as dangerous.

If you are concerned about an unusual skin growth, Dr. Peterson can diagnose and treat the cancer in a manner that offers the most pleasing final appearance- especially important if the cancer is in a highly visible area.

No matter who performs initial treatments, Dr. Peterson can be an important part of your treatment team. Reconstructive techniques- ranging from scar revisions to complex transfer of tissue flaps from elsewhere on the body- can help restore most patients to acceptable appearance and function.
