Skin cancer surgery are procedures that dermatologists use to remove cancerous lesions from the skin. The goal is to remove or destroy all cancerous cells so they can’t grow, metastasize and spread to other areas of your body. Some skin cancer surgeries involve the removal of a margin of healthy cells around the lesion to be safe.
Dr. Fogel and the team at Adult & Pediatric Dermatology Specialists provide several types of skin cancer surgery.
The team performs your skin cancer surgery while being mindful of any possible scarring that may occur. They can also help you care for the area as it heals after treatment.
There are a few different skin cancer surgery methods that Dr. Fogel uses to remove cancerous lesions. Depending on the type, depth and location of the skin cancer you have, he might recommend:
Electrodessication & Curretage (ED&C)
