Skin Cancer Removal involves eliminating abnormal growth of skin cells characterized by different types of skin cancer: Basal Cell Carcinoma (BCC), Squamous Cell Carcinoma (SCC), and Melanoma. Early detection and treatment are vital for successful outcomes.

What happens during Skin Cancer Removal surgery?

Various techniques are employed for Skin Cancer Removal, including:

  • Excision: Surgically removing the cancerous tissue along with a margin of healthy skin.
  • Mohs Micrographic Surgery: A specialized technique for precise removal of skin cancer while sparing healthy tissue.
  • Curettage and Electrodesiccation: Scraping off the cancerous tissue and using an electric current to destroy any remaining cancer cells.
  • Laser Surgery: Using a high-energy beam of light to vaporize or destroy cancer cells.
  • Topical Treatments: Using creams or gels containing specialized medications for certain superficial skin cancers.

Going home after Skin Cancer Removal surgery

Post Skin Cancer Removal, proper wound care is essential for optimal healing. Protecting the treated area from sun exposure and following sun protection practices is crucial. Regular follow-up visits help monitor the area and detect any potential recurrence or new skin lesions.
