DEERFIELD, IL, January 01, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Many people enjoy surprises and the unexpected, but no one expects to develop a skin problem. And everyone definitely doesn't enjoy realizing his/her skin needs to be seen and taken care of by a professional. During this time, a person needs to remain calm and collected, but that is easier said than done. With Deerfield Dermatology Associates offering skin exams in Deerfield, accurate skin diagnosis is easily diagnosed and dealt with.
"No one wants to deal with skin issues. There are multiple factors that can be responsible for skin irritation, sores, rashes, etc. You can't be entirely sure what is going on with your skin, but we can. Our combined knowledge and experience promises quality diagnosis of pathology specimens," explains Dr. Divya Singh-Behl, Deerfield dermatologist.
If a traditional exam can't identify the cause, Deerfield Dermatology Associates will do a skin biopsy to understand the extent of the issue and provide the correct treatment. Depending on the size and location of an abnormal area of skin, the Deerfield Dermatology Associates can determine the type of biopsy to conduct: shave, punch or excision biopsy.
The shave biopsy is the most common procedure-the top layer of skin, the epidermis, is removed. This biopsy is useful for diagnosis of melanoma (skin cancer), skin conditions (psoriasis, eczema) and bacterial or fungal skin infection. However, a punch or excision biopsy is recommended if melanoma is suspected. These two biopsies remove deeper skin layers to accurately study skin cells under a microscope.
Skin exams, especially skin biopsies, are best to confirm more serious skin issues. You want to receive correct diagnosis and proper treatment, and the Deerfield Dermatology Associates can give you that. Their dermatology practice offers the latest skin condition and skin cancer treatments.
