SKIN CANCER EXCISIONS
According to the American Cancer Society, 13,650 skin cancer deaths occur each year in America, and nearly 1 out of 5 Americans will be confronted with skin cancer during their lifetime.
A surgical excision, more commonly known as shave excision of a skin lesion, is a skin cancer treatment that surgically removes malignant moles, lesions and tumors from the skin. It also removes a healthy margin around the tumor. Surgical excisions can be used to treat basal and squamous cell carcinomas as well as melanomas.
Surgical excision is a medical procedure that is used to remove abnormal tissue. It is typically used to treat cancers and other growths that are located on the surface of the body. The goal of surgical excision is to remove all of the abnormal tissue while preserving as much healthy tissue as possible.
