Types of Surgery for Skin Cancer
For skin cancers that have not yet spread, surgery can be performed. However, the more aggressive types of skin cancers may need more extensive surgeries.
Below are the most common types of surgeries recommended by trusted skin cancer clinic Sydney for skin cancer:
When left untreated, skin cancers will grow and can spread to regional lymph nodes and other organs, especially Melanoma.. During a full skin examination, you will be asked about sun exposure history. Then, our dermatologist will examine you from head to toes to identify any suspicious skin lesion, if resembling skin cancer, you will then require a biopsy to confirm the diagnosis.
Dermoscopy is a low-cost yet efficient tool that can improve a dermatologist’s accuracy in diagnosing skin cancer. It consists of a magnifier, a light source (polarized or non-polarised), a transparent plate and a sometimes a liquid medium between the instrument and the skin.
In Pymble Dermatology, photographs are taken and archive if clinically required. This is one way of monitoring moles or any suspicious skin lesions prior to biopsy. However, Dermatologists at Pymble Dermatology liaise with the Melanoma Institute of Australia for arrangement of total body photography for our patients. This procedure is used to detect and monitor atypical nevi and dysplastic for the early detection of malignant melanomas.
