Skin cancer is the most common cancer. Fair-skinned people who sunburn easily are at high risk of developing skin cancer. Other causes of skin cancer include medical and industrial x-ray exposure, scarring from diseases or burns, occupational exposure to compounds such as coal tar and arsenic, and family history of skin cancer.
At Brampton Cosmetic & Medical Dermatology we provide evaluation, and medical and surgical treatments for various forms of skin cancer. Skin cancer services are covered through OHIP.
