When Might You Need a Skin Excision?

Surgical excision is the removal of non-malignant or malignant tumours or moles that exist on the skin. There are many factors for your doctor to consider. Your doctor will advise you on what the best treatment option for you is in regard to your cancer. Both melanoma and non-melanoma cancers can be treated with skin excisions.

What To Expect With an Excision?

During an excision, your doctor will first numb the area with a local anaesthetic. The doctor will then cut out the tumour, along with a healthy margin of skin to make sure no cancer cells are left. The wound will then be stitched up.

After your excision, the wound needs to be cleaned and tended to like any other, such as keeping it dry, changing the bandage regularly and may need antibiotic creams to avoid infection. Scarring will probably occur.
