Skin Cancer Treatment

Skin cancer can arise from many factors, including sun exposure. We treat a large variety of skin cancers, but most commonly basal and squamous cell carcinomas and melanoma.

Melanoma is the most serious skin cancer and requires the most aggressive treatment. Dr. Economou treats melanoma arising in any part of the body and is the only Twin Cities Plastic Surgeon performing sentinel lymph node biopsy for staging of the disease. He works closely with other specialists who care for melanoma patients to ensure that treatment and outcomes are optimized.

Most patients have suspicious lesions first examined and biopsied by their primary care physician or dermatologist. Once the diagnosis is established, a treatment plan is initiated. Whether or not radiation or chemotherapy is needed will be determined by the final pathology report.
