Skin cancers can be disfiguring in many cases. In a few cases they may be life threatening. Due to skin cancer’s presence on the skin, it is one of the easiest cancers to discover in early stages. If caught early, removal is often fairly simple resulting in a straight line scar. Occasionally, the removal may be more complex, calling for reconstructive surgery with the use of skin grafts, local flaps, or free flaps.

Dr. Islur is an expert in all types of reconstructive modalities including skin grafting, local/region flaps, and free tissue flap reconstruction. On occasion dermatologists, oncological surgeons, or oncologists may be consulted before or after your treatment for optimal results.

Understanding Skin Cancer

There are two main types of skin cancer: Melanoma or non-melanoma.


Melanoma can develop in a pre-existing mole or it can develop on its own as a dark spot on the body, most commonly on the head or neck, the back, or the back of the legs.

  • It is often discovered as a mole that looks uneven in terms of its border, shape, or color.


Non-melanoma skin cancers can be either basal cell carcinoma (BCC) or squamous cell carcinoma (SCC).

  • BCCs often develop as an elevated spot that may crust and bleed. It tends to grow very slowly, over months to years, and although potentially disfiguring and locally invasive, it rarely spreads to other parts of the body.
  • SCCs often looks like a reddened raised area of skin that doesn’t heal. Although not as dangerous as melanoma, SCCs will occasionally spread to the local lymph glands and on to the rest of the body.
