As an uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells in the skin, skin cancer is a common disease, growing faster than any other type of cancer due to a growing increase in sunbathing. Our Queens medical dermatologist, Charles Kleinberg, MD, is a board-certified physician who combines his vast experience with cutting-edge developments in dermatology to treat all types of skin cancer.

Skin cancer is a universal name for a group of cancers of the skin. Specific types of skin cancer include basal cell carcinoma, malignant melanoma, and squamous cell carcinoma. Skin cancer often develops on areas of the body that have been heavily exposed to the sun, such as the face, mouth, ears, and the back of the hands. Malignant melanoma, however, can also develop in places that are not exposed to sun. Long term exposure to the sun raises the risk of developing skin cancer, as well as people who have repeated sunburns or even one very bad sunburn as a child. Skin cancer is also more likely to develop in people who use tanning beds. Our Queens medical dermatologist will also explain that others at risk include people with fair skin, people with numerous moles, those with a family history of skin cancer, or those who are middle age or older.

Symptoms of skin cancer include abnormal-looking moles or areas of skin that appear irregular. Left untreated, certain forms of skin cancer may spread to nearby lymph nodes and then to other areas of the body. In order to diagnose skin cancer our Queens medical dermatologist will take a thorough medical history, including present symptoms, and a comprehensive exam that focuses on the skin, especially moles, freckles, and lumps. To confirm a diagnosis of skin cancer, a biopsy will be performed of the mole, lump, or questionable area of skin.

Confirming a diagnosis of skin cancer includes performing a biopsy of the mole, lump, or the area of skin suspected of cancer. Many cases of skin cancer can be prevented by protecting children and adults from sunburn and staying away from excessive exposure to the sun. Treatment of skin cancer with our Queens medical dermatologist, Dr. Kleinberg, varies depending on many factors, such as if cancer cells have spread to other areas of the body. Using the latest technology, our caring and compassionate staff provides effective treatment with the personal attention you deserve.

Melanoma may be thought of as something that could never happen to you, but in fact one in give Americans will develop skin cancer in their lifetime, with numbers rapidly increasing over the last thirty years, largely due to the popularization of tanning salons. This love of tan skin is also mostly likely linked to the high percentage of melanomas detected on the torsos of women as young as 15-29 years of age. The chances of getting skin cancer are greatly increased if you have moles, or a history of skin cancer in your family. But how can you tell the difference between a healthy mole and a melanoma? Be on the lookout for any changes in a suspicious looking mole for about a month using the ABCDE method. This stands for asymmetry, border irregularity, color (if the color changes or is not entirely the same), diameter, and evolution. Any mole growth should be examined closely for these signs. Skin cancer may sound scary, but with an early diagnosis a melanoma can actually be easily treated. Your local Queens dermatologist can provide you with the tools and information you need, combined with the friendly and knowledgeable council of Dr. Charles Kleinberg to guide you every step of the way.
