Skin cancer diagnosis and treatment from our experts

To encourage the early detection of skin cancer, the American Academy of Dermatology recommends annual skin cancer screenings for adults. During this exam, our Virginia Beach dermatologists conduct a complete body scan, helping detect any abnormal spots or patches on your skin. Contact our office right away if you observe any persistent skin problems, including discoloration, itching, or redness.

Early detection is the most important factor in the treatment of skin cancer. Our dermatologists in Virginia Beach are highly skilled in the detection of precancerous spots and skin cancer, and we take a comprehensive and compassionate approach to treatment. If you receive a skin cancer diagnosis, your dermatologist will provide the treatment and support you need to successfully overcome this disease.

We offer several treatments for skin cancer, including standard excision, scraping and burning, and cryotherapy.
