Skin Cancer Screening:
Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer but it is very treatable when it is detected early. The American Academy of Dermatology recommends that everyone have a yearly check to screen for skin cancer. If you have spent a lot of time in the sun, regular skin screenings are particularly important. This is the opportunity for your doctor to carefully examine your skin and address any lesions that you may be specifically concerned about. Clayton Dermatology Group is diligent about early detection and treatment of skin cancer.
Moles & Warts:
Moles and warts are growths on the skin and can range in color from pink and tan to brown or black. It is important to have a dermatologist check your skin to distinguish these normal growths from skin cancers, including melanoma which is the most dangerous type of skin cancer. Clayton Dermatology Group customizes our approach to each patient's needs and concerns. Most unwanted growths can be removed. A skin biopsy can be done if there is concern for a cancerous growth.Make An Appointment
Acne is the most common medical condition and affects over 80% of the population. Acne begins when the skin's oil glands and dead skin cells cause a blockage in the hair follicles of the skin. These blockages can take the form of blackheads or flesh-colored bumps. Sometimes the blockages become inflamed, causing pustules or cysts. Acne can be painful and cause permanent scarring. Early treatment is important to reduce the risk for scarring, discoloration, and worsening acne.
