I recently had a patient that asked me, can dogs get skin cancer? Thanks to a recent publication by the Skin Cancer Foundation, I was able to answer this question. Dogs can get skin cancer too! It is more common for a dog to get a Melanoma than a Basal Cell or Squamous Cell Carcinoma. However, all are possible. Just like humans, heredity plays a role in the development of Melanoma in dogs. Darker haired dogs are more likely to develop melanoma, while light-haired dogs are more likely to develop Basal Cell or Squamous Cell Carcinoma. You can take steps to protect your dog from the sun by giving him a shady place to rest when outside. You can even buy sun protective clothing or doggie sunscreen at your local pet store. Don't forget to apply sunblock on yourself too! Of course, regular check-ups at the Dermatologist and Veteranarian can help prevent or catch skin cancers in early stages on you and your dog!

In a recent issue of Dermatology World, I was introduced to a new term accepted and listed in the online Urban Dictionary - BROTOX.  This tells of how the use of Botox and other cosmetic procedures are being used not only by women, but now by men.  The reason is that we possess the options of noninvasive and natural-looking procedures.  And noninvasive is where dermatologist have been comfortable for years as opposed to plastic surgeons.  Our office excels at both Botox and Juvederm.  So men take advantage of what women have known, sought and received and let us tell you what we can offer you aesthetically.  Everyone wants to look better.

Tags: Screening  

Our skin cancer screening at the Boulevard Mall this year was a great success!  The event was covered by television channel 4 news and we were able to screen more than 150 people. We were able to identify a number of different skin cancers and counseled people regarding treatment and sun protection.

This years screening was organized by 2 UB medical students.  Molly Cowdrey and Emily Farrell arranged for the space, equipment and free Neutrogena sunscreen samples.  I would also like to recognize the 2 physician assistants from our practice, Susan Peterson and Emily Gottstein for giving a Saturday afternoon back to the community.  Other dermatologist volunteers included Mary Louise Lenahan and Ceaser Guerro and Ruchi Bhandari.  All and all a very "feel good" kind of day.
