SKIN CANCER REMOVAL
Common treatment for skin cancer is surgery performed in the office using local anesthetic (numbing medicine). The treatment depends on the type and size of the cancer, but typically basal cell, melanomas and squamous skin cancers can be removed.
If you have a scar from an injury or a previous surgery that you’re tired of seeing, scar revision treatment could be the answer for you. This is an outpatient procedure that can be completed in a few minutes in the office or in a short time in the operating room depending on the size and location of the scarring.
A skin lesion is an area of abnormality that may come in the form of a lump, sore, or discoloration. During a skin biopsy a small portion of that area of skin is removed to be examined further to diagnose skin cancer or other conditions.
