Melanoma in Orlando, FL

Melanoma is one of the least common but more aggressive types of skin cancer. It develops when the melanocytes — cells that generate pigment within the skin — grow out of control. This variation of skin cancer manifests as an existing spot that turns darker in hue expands in size, or changes its appearance and has jagged edges. Usually, pale-skinned individuals are more likely to develop melanoma, but it can impact anyone and everyone, regardless of skin tone. At Pure Skin Dermatology & Aesthetics, our compassionate team offers preventive skin cancer assessments to spot irregular moles on the skin before any symptoms of melanoma start to become apparent. Moreover, our providers can perform skin biopsies to analyze the spot and decide the ideal treatment strategy if the mole is, in fact, melanoma. Whether you have a specific skin concern you'd like to investigate or you're due for a skin cancer screening, we invite you to contact our Orlando, FL practice to set up your next appointment.

Melanoma is most responsive to treatment when it's identified and addressed early in its development. In order to detect melanoma before the disease progresses, Pure Skin Dermatology & Aesthetics recommends scheduling regular skin cancer examinations as part of your skin care regimen. During your visit, we will carry out a complete health exam and examine any spots or rashes that may be a sign of trouble. If we find any moles or lesions that are cause for concern, we will conduct a skin biopsy for further examination to see if it might be melanoma. This test involves numbing the area and removing the full growth or a tiny portion.

When doing self-exams for melanoma, it's useful to remember the ABCDE rules:

  • A: Asymmetrical (one half of the mole doesn't match the other)
  • B: Borders (having abnormal, ragged, or faint margins)
  • C: Color (being dark or having different colors)
  • D: Diameter (possessing a width equal to or more than 6mm, which is close to the diameter of a pencil eraser)
  • E: Evolving (changing in size, shape, or color)

It is crucial to come in for periodic full-body skin examinations at Pure Skin Dermatology & Aesthetics to have all parts examined for any traces of skin cancer.

Dr Grayman genuinely cares for her patients. She takes the time to listen and is very knowledgeable. I’ve been to 2 dermatologist about a scalp condition but she was the first doctor to demonstrate sensitivity, understanding, patience, and provided a treatment plan that actually gives me some hope. Thank you again Dr Grayman.

I started seeing Dr. Grayman in March for my hair and alopecia. In the last several months my skin has cleared and my hair is filling in. I'm very happy with the care I've received and her staff is great never once have I felt rushed. She is a direct communicator which I love. I specially sought out an African America dermatologist and she is more than worth the wait. I have had to wait in office once or twice but I wait anytime I go to the Dr. It happens. Patience and kindness goes a long way.
