Surgical excision is often used to remove cancerous tumors of the skin. Surgical excision removes the tumor itself along with some surrounding skin. From there, a pathologist examines the excised tissue to ensure that the entire tumor has been removed. Surgical excision usually takes place under local anesthesia though large melanomas or those in difficult areas may require general anesthesia. Small excisions are typically closed with stitches while larger or prominently located ones may require skin grafting. Need help in choosing the best skin cancer treatment options?
