Having received her dermatology training at the University of Minnesota, a world-renown transplant center, and at an area with diverse patient population from different ethnic backgrounds, Dr. Panoutsopoulou is experienced in detecting, diagnosing and treating simple as well as complex skin cancer cases in immunosuppressed patients, such as transplant patients. Dr. Panoutsopoulou manages skin cancer cases using a wide range of treatment modalities from topical products to cryosurgery and electrodessication and curettage to surgical excisions.
Even though most skin cancers show up on sun-exposed body areas, they can affect any part of the body including the palms & feet, genitals and oral cavity as well as nails & scalp.
The most common types of skin cancer are the basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma. The melanoma, a less common type of skin cancers, can affect the survival by affecting the internal organs. Therefore, early detection is important.
Not all moles are worrisome. Dr. Panoutsopoulou listens carefully to your concerns, takes detailed history, and then examines your skin thoroughly using dermoscopy. She, then, discusses with you whether your mole are benign, or need to be monitored with digital mole mapping, or even to be biopsied and surgically excised for evaluation under the microscope.
