Skin Cancer


Skin cancer consultation and treatments are provided for patients who are concerned about a skin growth or mole.  Patients can either arrange their own consultation with Dr. Mallen or be referred to him by their primary care provider or dermatologist. 

In an initial consultation, patients complete a questionnaire focusing on past medical history, family history and issues regarding exposure to the sun or tanning beds.  Dr. Mallen focuses on changes in color or increase in growth and the overall appearance of skin lesions which influence his degree of concern.  Recommendations are made which may include observation, biopsy or excision.  All removed specimens are sent to a pathologist for diagnosis.
