CYST REMOVAL

Cysts can be found nearly anywhere in the body and the most common type of cyst that you can experience are sebaceous and epidermoid cysts. They typically appear as small round bumps that may sometimes have small openings that appear like clogged pores.

Cysts are usually harmless, but sometimes it is possible for them to become infected or inflamed. Surgical excision is the most common tool for cyst removal, and it involves a small incision being made at the site of the cyst and the cyst itself along with nearby tissue being removed surgically to ensure complete excision.

SKIN CANCER TREATMENT

SKIN CANCER TREATMENT

As the single most common type of cancer in the United States, most cases of skin cancer are a result of excessive sunlight exposure or use of tanning beds. The three most common types of skin cancer are squamous cell carcinoma, melanoma and basal cell carcinoma.

Our doctors will first biopsy a lesion suspicious for cancer using local anesthesia and sampling the lesion. Once the skin specimen is sent to a laboratory, a trained dermapathologist will examine it under a microscope.
If the presence of cancer cells is confirmed, our dermatologists will recommend a customized solution to you based off the type of skin cancer that you suffer from, your medical history and the area of infection. Surgical excision is the most common recommended solution for skin cancer removal. Excision is performed within a surgical suite using local anesthesia.
Other possible surgical solutions include ED & C (electrodessication and curettage), Mohs surgery and cryotherapy. Some medications could also be prescribed in some circumstances in addition to surgery.

SKIN TAG REMOVAL

Skin tags are a type of small growth that appears like a small piece of extra skin that typically develops in areas such as the neck, groin, eyelids, beneath the breasts.

Although not dangerous, they can still be removed for cosmetic and comfort purposes. they can be removed through either surgery, freezing or electrocautery.

WARTS, MOLLUSCUM, AND CONDYLOMA

These three are types of skin bumps caused by viral infections. The human papillomavirus (HPV) causes both warts and condyloma, and the Molluscum Pox virus causes molluscum.

These skin bumps can be removed using chemical treatments, cryosurgery or electrocautery. Especially large bumps may require surgical removal.
