Skin cancer is broken into 2 categories: Melanoma and Non-Melanoma.
At Calgary Dermatology, we only offer non-surgical treatments for Non-Melanoma Skin Cancer. Melanoma treatments, and non-melanoma treatments that require surgical removal will be referred to a surgeon. Learn more about the Skin Cancer Treatments we offer.
Non-Melanoma Skin Cancer is broken down into 2 types: Squamous Cell Cancer and Basal Cell Cancer. We also treat Actinic Keratosis, which is not a form of cancer but can become cancerous.
Skin Cancer treatments may have side effects. Visit our Skin Care Tips page to learn more.
Once diagnosed with skin cancer, patients schedule an appointment with Dr. Barber for an assessment. During this assessment we determine what kind of skin cancer you may have and whether or not you will require a biopsy to get further information about your diagnosis. If you require a biopsy, you will be referred to a surgeon right away and we will set up a follow up appointment 7-10 days later.
