- Accurate and Early Skin Cancer Diagnosis
You've heard that "knowledge is power," a phrase that rings even more true when it comes to matters of your health. Through experience and by staying abreast of breakthrough research and innovative therapies, we are continually building our knowledge about what causes cancer and how to treat it. But we can't treat it until we know it's there.
Catching cancer in its early stages ensures you have the best chance for a full recovery. That's why the imaging experts at AdventHealth aim for same-day test results whenever possible. We rely on comprehensive skin-cancer screenings, including minimally invasive tissue biopsies, to help you get the fastest diagnosis and the most-advanced care. Because once we know what's happening with your body, we can begin to provide the care you need to start healing.
- Types of Skin Cancer We Treat
Whatever your circumstances, you find the spirit and the strength to power through. But sometimes you need a little extra help. That’s why our nationally renowned skin-cancer specialists work tirelessly to detect and prevent skin cancer, formulating personalized treatment plans that are as strong as your conviction to get better. You’re giving it all you’ve got. And so are we. Across our AdventHealth network, we have specialists trained in treating the following types of skin cancer:
- Basal cell carcinoma is the most common type of skin cancer. It usually develops on areas of the body that get the most sun exposure.
- Melanoma is the most serious type of skin cancer but it's highly treatable when caught early.
- Squamous cell carcinoma is the second most-common type of skin cancer.
