Basal Cell Carcinoma (BCC) and Squamous Cell Carcinoma (SCC) are the two most prevalent types of non-melanoma skin cancers. These conditions require specialized care and tailored treatments, which we are fully equipped to provide.

  • Basal Cell Carcinoma (BCC): Often appearing as a translucent bump or a pearly nodule, BCC is the most common type of skin cancer. While it typically grows slowly and rarely spreads to other parts of the body, early intervention is crucial. Our clinic offers various surgical and non-surgical options to effectively remove BCC, preserving both function and aesthetics.
  • Squamous Cell Carcinoma (SCC): SCC manifests as a firm, red nodule or a flat lesion with a scaly crust. It’s essential to address SCC promptly, as it can spread to nearby tissues if left untreated. Our comprehensive approach includes surgical procedures tailored to remove SCC while prioritizing optimal healing and minimal scarring.
