Skin Cancer

How does skin cancer develop?skincancer

Skin cancer is by far the most common type of cancer, there are more than 3.5 million new cases of skin cancer in the U.S. each year. Skin cancer that most frequently develops from skin exposed to extensive sunlight is the abnormal growth of skin cells. Early detection of suspicious changes in skin is essential for the successful skin cancer treatment. Limiting your exposure to ultraviolet radiation is key to avoiding a risk of skin cancer. Scheduling a consultation with our professional team Kovak Cosmetic Center is a good idea if you have noticed a dramatic change in your skin’s tone or if you have a questionable spot.

Skin cancer can progress from heavily sun-exposed skin like the face, lips, ears, neck, chest and arms. It may also form in other places like palms, feet and genitals that don’t necessarily endure extensive sun light.


  • Here are some tips to enjoy the sun in a safe way:
  • Wear sunscreen (30 SPF or higher)
  • Cover up while the sun is at its most powerful throughout the day 10am-4pm
  • Sunglasses with 100% UV protection
  • Avoiding artificial tanning beds and sun lamps

At Kovak Cosmetic Center, the main goal of treatment is to remove or destroy the cancerous cells with as small a scar as possible.  Speak with one of our doctors to find your unique treatment plan.
