Protect your health with a skin cancer screening

Did you know that skin cancer is the most common type of cancer in the United States? Current estimates from the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) indicate that one in five people will be affected by skin cancer in their lifetime. To aid in the early detection of skin cancer, Forefront Dermatology follows the guidelines outlined by the AAD and recommends that everyone sees a dermatologist once a year for a skin check.

We also encourage you to see your dermatologist in Kaukauna anytime you notice changes in your skin, such as a mole or spot that itches, bleeds, or changes in size or color. Our team can also evaluate other skin concerns, such as irritation, redness, or dryness that isn’t alleviated with over-the-counter treatments.

Skin cancer diagnosis and treatment from our skin care experts

Early detection is crucial when it comes to successful skin cancer treatment. During your annual skin check, your Forefront provider will carefully examine your skin from head to toe, looking for any moles, freckles, or spots that are abnormal. If you’re diagnosed with skin cancer, your dermatologist in Kaukauna will talk with you about the next steps and design a treatment plan for your specific needs.

We offer several skin cancer treatments, including excision, curettage and electrocautery, and cryotherapy. We’re also proud to have Dr. Noah Smith as our fellowship-trained Mohs surgeon. With a success rate up to 99%, Mohs surgery is one of the most effective treatments for skin cancer.
