Home Surgical Procedures Skin Toumor Removal
Many people are concerned about their skin tumors for aesthetic reasons, however, many are also worried because of the high incidence of skin cancer.

In addition to those which might be removed for aesthetic reasons, any skin tumor which itches, changes colour, bleeds, or expands should be looked at and eventually removed for biopsy.

Any benign skin tumor can be removed easily and effectively within a matter of minutes under local anesthesia on an out-patient basis.

On the other hand, malign skin tumors are usually removed under local anaesthesia with sedation as wider excisions are required and often skin grafts are necessary.

Benign skin tumors include skin tags, moles, papillomas, naevus, cherry angiomas, dermatofibroma, seboreeheic keratosis, actinic keratosis, sebaceous cysts, epidermoid cysts and lipomas. Malign skin tumors include melanomas, basal cell carcinomas, squamous cell carcinomas, bowen’s disease, erythroplasia of queyrat, leukoplakia, verrucous carcinoma and keratoacanthomas.
