Skin Cancer

Trust your skin cancer care to the dermatologists and oncologists at Henry Ford.

The skin is your largest organ -- the average adult has about 8 pounds of it. Your skin is a truly wondrous organ. It insulates you, shields your body from dangers too small to see, and creates vitamin D from sunlight to keep your bones strong.

However, skin also is vulnerable to damage from UVB rays from the sun. Long-term or intense bursts of exposure can cause sunburns, sun spots, and moles. The sun also can cause skin cancer, including basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and melanoma.

Skin cancer is a serious condition, but it is common. In fact, more cases of skin cancer are diagnosed each year than cases of breast, colon, lung, and prostate cancers combined.

Why should I choose Henry Ford for skin cancer treatment?

The team approach at Henry Ford means you’ll get the care and answers you need from diagnosis through recovery. We offer education on skin cancer prevention and other resources so you know what to expect along the way.

Every case of skin cancer is as unique as the patients who visit us. That means your treatment plan will be tailored to your condition. Our dermatologists work closely with specialists in radiation oncology, medical oncology, and cosmetic surgery. We collaborate to make sure you get the personalized care you need and the best outcome after you recover.
