Removing Skin Cancer, Growth, Cyst and Mole without stitching.
|We Remove Skin Cancer, Cyst and Mole without stitching.
Shave excision is a simpler and less expensive procedure to perform than a full-thickness skin excision that requires sutures (stitches). The skin wound from a shave excision procedure does not need stitches. All surgical skin procedures produce a scar, but the shave excision, with electrosurgical smoothing of the wound edges, can produce a less noticeable scar that blends well into the surrounding skin. Infections are infrequent after a shave excision procedure, and it provides a specimen for analysis.
Most shave excisions are performed with local anesthesia (numbing medicine) that is injected beneath the skin growth using a tiny needle. This causes the lesion to raise upward. The numbing medicine actually makes the shave excision procedure easier to perform.
Once a skin tumor or skin growth is removed, it is sent to a laboratory where it is examined under the microscope by a doctor known as a pathologist. The pathologic evaluation can determine whether the skin growth is cancerous.
