Post Surgery Review

I would like to thank Dr. David Roy and his staff at the Pine Belt Dermatology Skin Cancer Center in Petal, MS for the outstanding service I received when they removed a Basal Cell Carcinoma from my upper lip this week. They had to remove one-third of my lip and some of my muscle above the lip, and even though it looks swollen and frightful now, it appears that my lip will return very closely...

The first report of this cancer was in 1972. Since that time, the incidence of MCC has increased significantly. Between 1986 and 2001 the incidence of MCC increased approximately 8% each year. So what is Merkel cell carcinoma, and how does it differ from t...

Squamous Cell Carcinoma - When Should You Worry?

Today we are discussing squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) because it is a topic that I am very passionate about and one that I feel causes a fair bit of confusion. SCC is the second most common form of skin cancer and, in the South, the number of people who die from SCC of the skin is about equal to the number of people who die from melanoma. I have heard many patients and, unfortunately, several physicians say that SCC should not be of great concern and that I make too big of...

Acne Treatment Post-Accutane

Dear Readers, We have had several questions regarding isotretinoin, better known by its old trade name, Accutane. I will tackle two of these questions today. The first question is, “Why is Accutane not working after 6 months?” The answer to this question is not often clear and may be due to several factors. The first question I would ask is, what dose were you taking and how much do you weigh? The typical dosage for the medication is .5 t...

Tips on Tattoo Removal & Maintaining Tattoo Health

Thinking About Getting a Tattoo or Need a Tattoo Removal? From 2010 to 2015, the tattoo industry grew exponentially. In 2015 the Federal Drug Administration estimated that nearly 45 million Americans had at least one tattoo. An expansion in the variety of tattoo services that are offered by artists (i.e. invisible ink, 3D tattoos, and more detailed tattoos) has been largely responsible for this boon. The industry will only continue to grow as new technologies become...
