Removal of Skin Cancer

Dr Sewell is an expert skin cancer specialist and skin surgeon and will initially assess the lesion of concern to make a diagnosis and to determine the best way to remove and treat the skin cancer. This usually involves either cryotherapy, triple curettage and cautery, excision, a cream or radiotherapy.

Cryotherapy is a very quick treatment, without the need for surgery or local anaesthetic which works by freezing the cells with a spray of liquid nitrogen for a few seconds. Sometimes more than one session of cryotherapy is needed to remove the lesion and this is a suitable method of removing superficial skin cancers.

Triple curettage and cautery involves local anaesthetic injection, followed by the removal of the lesion by scraping it off with a loop device, then a heat course is applied to the skin to stop any bleeding, then the scraping and heat source application is repeated twice more.

Excision involves local anaesthetic injection, followed by the removal of the lesion by cutting out the lesion as well as a margin of healthy skin around it with a scalpel, then stopping the bleeding with a heat source, then sutures and a dressing are applied.

In all instances, Dr Sewell will advise you on how to care for the area after your procedure. All procedures inevitably carry some degree of scarring, but Dr Sewell is a trained skin surgeon and uses techniques to minimise scarring.

For certain superficial cancerous lesions, creams maybe used to treat the lesions effectively and Dr Sewell will choose the best cream for you or if appropriate refer you to an Oncologist for radiotherapy as part of your personalised management plan.
