UNDERSTANDING THE PROCEDURE
At Alexander Cosmetic Surgery, taking care of skin cancers is one the procedures we perform on a daily basis.
Skin cancers usually develop on areas of the body that have been exposed to the sun. They often present as an irritated area that is flaky, red, ulcerated, or doesn’t seem to heal. It can be difficult to tell if a patient has a skin cancer just with the naked eye or magnification because pre-cancerous lesions and even benign growths can imitate cancers. The only way to tell for sure is to remove the growth and have it examined by a trained pathologist.
Most skin cancer procedures are very quick and simple and can usually be done with a local anesthetic in just a few minutes.
