Basal Cell Carcinoma, the most common cancer, together with Squamous Cell Carcinoma affecting 1 in 5 Americans. In their early stages, both types of skin cancer are easily treated by an office surgery. If neglected, they can cause local disfigurement, damage to nearby tissues, and, in some cases, metastasize to distant organs and become fatal, said Dr. Ghohestani. Because they are easily taken care of early on, it is important to detect these skin cancers at the very early stage. read more >>
