Skin Cancer in Palm Beach Gardens & Stuart, FL

What Causes Skin Cancer?

Most skin cancer is caused by excess exposure to UV rays, such as that from the sun or tanning beds. This UV ray exposure can damage cells in the body, such as basal cells, squamous cells, melanocytes and merkel cells, causing them to mutate into cancerous cells. The type of cells affected in this process will determine the type of skin cancer that develops. While there are other factors that can increase your risk of developing skin cancer, sun exposure is known to be one of the greatest risks.

What Can I Expect from Skin Cancer Treatment?

When detected and treated early, skin cancer treatment is highly effective. In these cases, most patients can expect an excellent prognosis and the complete removal of cancerous cells. However, skin cancer that is in later stages may have spread to other parts of the body. In these cases, patients will need a more thorough treatment process that addresses areas beyond the skin. During your visit, Dr. Krathen will let you know what to expect during and after your skin cancer treatment.
