Pre-cancers, otherwise known as actinic keratoses, are the rough scaly spots that are usually seen on sun-damaged parts of the skin. Many people do not realize that these spots, even though very common, can also be dangerous and a sign of an increased risk of skin cancer. They occur most commonly on the scalp, face, ears, lips, and arms. Women often also get these on the lower legs. It is important to diagnose and treat pre-cancers because if left alone, they can turn into a form of skin cancer known as squamous cell carcinoma. There are many forms of treatment for pre-cancers including freezing as well as different types of creams.

Sometimes, all of us have spots or moles that are in locations that are cosmetically bothersome. These can easily be removed with a short outpatient procedure in the office. Although moles that are not changing or causing irritation are not covered by insurance, we can still remove them for cosmetic purposes.
