David Napoliello, MD helps patients with many ailments, including melanoma, commonly called skin cancer.

Scary statistics, like how one person dies of melanoma every hour, are thrown around often. However, being diagnosed with melanoma is not a death sentence. With proper prevention and timely treatment, melanoma can be beaten. The best thing you can do if you suspect you may have melanoma is to seek the help of a professional. 

Call Our Surgeon If You See a Suspicious Mole

Melanoma typically manifests itself as a mole somewhere on the skin. The legs and back area are two of the most common areas for a melanoma growth to appear. One of the reasons that melanoma has a high rate of fatality is because most people ignore the appearance of a new mole as no big deal. There are signs that indicate whether or not a mole is dangerous, including:

  • Appears Suddenly
  • Asymmetrical Shape
  • Irregular Borders
  • Irregular or Patchy Colors
  • Larger Size Than a Typical Mole
  • Grows Larger Over Time

If you spot a suspicious new mold or growth on your skin, contact us to schedule a biopsy. During the biopsy, a small sample of cells is taken for testing to determine if the mole is benign or malignant.
