SURGICAL SKIN CANCER REMOVALS
Wounds heal rapidly, usually in a week or two, while scarring depends on many factors, including the placement of the tumor and the patient’s care of the wound after the procedure. You will be provided with full education on aftercare and you will be required to have follow up appointments to monitor your wound.
The tissue sample will be sent to a pathology laboratory, to see if any of the “safety margin” has been invaded by skin cancer. If this is the case, it is assumed that the cancer is still present, and additional surgery is required.
