Skin Cancers and Lesions

Is it skin cancer?

With early diagnosis and treatment, most skin cancers are curable. If you have lesions with any of the following symptoms, please schedule an examination as soon as possible:

  • Skin sores that do not heal
  • Bumps or lesions that are enlarging
  • Changes in existing moles (size, texture, color)

Skin cancer treatment and cosmetic repair

Dr. Alexiou’s training and experience include an intense focus on the management, surgical removal and cosmetic reconstruction of skin cancers. Dermatologists in the Harrisonburg area have referred over 1,500 patients to Dr. Alexiou for skin excisions and repairs. Through his clinical experience, he has observed higher cure rates when the most common types of skin cancer are surgically removed.

Dr. Alexiou says, “For patients with skin issues, I’m proud that we provide excellent care on both sides of the spectrum—from treating skin cancers of all types to providing the best in cosmetic repair.”

Treatments for conditions ranging from minor skin lesions to advanced cancers include:

  • Surgical excision and plastic surgical repair
  • Topical ointments
