Pre-skin Cancers

At Madison Skin & Laser Center in Seattle, we have been providing medical, cosmetic, and surgical dermatology care to the greater Seattle area since 1999. We offer a range of treatment options for pre-skin cancers.

Over time, sun exposure can lead to the development of rough patches on one’s face, ears and hands. These patches are called actinic keratoses and are pre-skin cancers. Between 1 to 5% of actinic keratoses will develop into a skin cancer, making them important to treat.

We will design a treatment program for you, including options such as:

  • Liquid nitrogen
  • Creams with fluorouracil (Efudex, Carac) to treat these pre-skin cancers or imiquimod (Aldara)

Dr. Brandith Irwin is a certified dermatologist.  She provides exams and multiple treatment options for actinic keratoses at our Seattle dermatology office.
