A best practice for early skin cancer detection.

Skin cancer is the most common cancer, affecting millions of Americans every year. Early detection significantly increases skin cancer survival rates–this is especially true in the case of melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer. With these facts in mind, the need for regular skin cancer screenings cannot be overemphasized. Macias Dermatology employs the latest diagnostic tools for skin cancer screenings in order to provide Fresno and Central Valley patients with accurate and timely treatment recommendations.

How it works.

Our practitioners thoroughly assess, map and monitor skin lesions, employing state-of-the-art diagnostic tools. Skin cancer screening technology is an invaluable aid in the evaluation of lesions and the development of a diagnostic plan. Using specialized techniques such as dermoscopy—in which a dermatoscope is used to view subsurface anatomic structures in the skin—increases diagnostic accuracy of melanoma, basal cell skin cancer, skin malignancies, and benign skin lesions. Dermoscopy bridges the clinical with the histologic and allows our practitioners to see structures not visible to the naked eye. It is the current standard of care in evaluating moles.
