What Is Skin Cancer Excision?
Skin cancer excision is a surgical incision that is made to remove melanoma or another type of malignant lesion, along with the surrounding tissue that may appear normal. This helps maximize the chance that all traces of the cancer cells have been removed. Dr. Calvin Williams is a board-certified dermatologist at Essential Dermatology Group who can provide skin cancer excision for any patient who has been diagnosed with a cancerous lesion or tumor after having a skin biopsy done. This minor surgery is an effective way to cure cancer if it's still at an early stage. To learn more about skin cancer excision, call our Bedford, TX office to make an appointment.
What Can I Expect from Skin Cancer Excision?
Surgical excision for skin cancer can be performed in one of our treatment rooms at our Bedford, TX practice. Before Dr. Williams makes the incision, he will cleanse and numb the area with a local anesthetic to ensure you remain comfortable. Then, with careful precision, he will use a scalpel to cut the cancerous lesion and surrounding tissue out. Afterward, the excision will be closed with stitches to help the area heal. Antibiotics may be prescribed to ensure you don't get an infection. You may also be instructed to keep the area dry for the next 24 hours. Dr. Williams will provide additional aftercare instructions before you leave.
