Then you may be affected by skin cancer and skin cancer surgery is a way to getting rid of it.
Skin cancer refers to the abnormality in the skin cells, that results in the uncontrolled growth of the cells. The reason for skin cancer is the UV radiations from the sun or from any other source. The skin cells, as a result of mutation induced by DNA damage, divide rapidly and uncontrollably causing formation of facial tumors or masses or neoplasms. In the skin, cancer can occur in three kinds of cells: squamous cells (found in skin inner lining below the outer covering), basal cells (beneath the squamous cells) and melanocytes (in the lower part of the epidermis).
For skin cancer surgery or skin tumor surgery, different surgical treatments are available: excision biopsy surgery, Mohs micrographic surgery, and Curettage and electrodesiccation. These surgeries are applicable in the case of basal cell cancer, sebaceous gland carcinoma, malignant melanoma eyelid or squamous cell cancer.
For excision biopsy surgery, a local anesthetic such as lidocane is applied to the area of the skin containing the skin mass or skin cancer, to create numbness. Then, using surgical knife, incision is made into the skin around cancer containing region and the region is subsequently excised. To repair the wound, the surrounding skin is stitched. This surgery has a high cure rate, yet further treatment may be required.
Curettage and electrodesiccation entails using a curette- a surgical instrument- to scrape the tumor followed by using an electric needle to cauterize the remaining tumor cells. The procedure is repeated twice or thrice in the same visit and no stitches are required for healing to occur.
Mohs micrographic surgery ensures maximum removal of cancer cells, while preserving the neighboring normal cells. It involves layer by layer removal of the skin parts corresponding to cancer and subsequent examination of the layer under microscope for identification of cancerous cells, until cancer cells can no longer can be detected. This ensures margin clearance of the cancer cells – i.e. that the wound margins are free of any residual cancer cells. It has the highest cure rate.
Recovery time depends on the type of skin tumor surgery, the site where the surgery is performed and the quantity of skin that is removed during skin tumor surgery.
Skin cancer refers to the growths or neoplasms or masses on the skin, which have a potential to spread locally, via lymphatic tissue and via blood. The case, however, with skin cysts is different- they refer to the non-cancerous growth in the form of closed pouches of tissue sometimes filled with fluid. Cysts occur under the surface of skin and feel smooth and, when pressed, roll under the skin. Benign skin cysts do not spread and pose no threat to surrounding tissues or life, while malignant skin cancers can pose a threat to surrounding tissue and even tyo life, when they metastasize to distant organs like the lung and the liver.

Continuous exposure to UV radiation in sunlight and other sources of radiation can cause numerous skin abnormalities, some of which are malignant. Any abnormality in the skin should be examined by a specialist to rule out any possibility of cancer. In case a malignancy is found, skin cancer surgery can remove the cancerous growths and treat the malignancy.
Skin cancer surgery is a significant procedure and you should find out all the costs involved in the procedure. The cost of skin cancer surgery depends on the type of malignancy, extent of spread of the cancer as well as the location. A skilled skin cancer specialist should be sought to do the surgery to achieve 100% cancer removal.
