What Is Skin Cancer Removal?

Skin cancers are common yet concerning conditions affecting patients throughout the Sacramento, CA area. Sierra Pacific Surgical is pleased to offer skin cancer removal procedures to treat all types of skin cancer, including malignant melanoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and basal cell carcinoma lesions. During this procedure, our general surgeons will use precision techniques to remove the cancerous growth along with the bordering tissue. The excised (or removed) skin sample is then passed to a pathologist for further testing to determine whether or not the surrounding area is cancer-free. To learn if skin cancer surgery is the right treatment option for you, please schedule a visit at our Folsom or Roseville, CA office today.

How Is Skin Cancer Removal Performed?

Skin cancer removal may be performed in our state-of-the-art practices or in an accredited surgical center. To help minimize scarring and promote skin health, our team takes the most minimally invasive yet thorough approach possible to skin cancer removal. The lesion or tumor will be removed with a scalpel through horizontal incisions made throughout the lesion and surrounding tissue. An electrode may be used to perform a feathering process, which will smooth the edges around the wound. This helps to get rid of additional cells from the lesion and can reduce scarring. Small excisions will be sutured closed while larger excisions may require a skin graft to cover and protect the treatment area.

Skilled Skin Cancer Treatment

When diagnosed early, skin cancers are often very treatable. But without proper and timely care, these conditions may spread to other areas of the body and can be life-threatening. At Sierra Pacific Surgical, our general surgeons provide skilled surgical treatment for malignant melanoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and basal cell carcinoma. Contact our Folsom or Roseville, CA location today to schedule a consultation, and review your options for skin cancer surgery.
