Procedures for Skin Surgery

Melanoma

Melanoma is the most dangerous and deadly form of skin cancer. It involves melanocytes which produce pigment. When skin changes are noticed, the surgeon will remove all or a portion of the suspicious mole for laboratory analysis. It is done in the office with just the area around the mole being numbed. You and your surgeon will decide which removal approach is best for you. Skin changes to watch for are the A, B, C, D, E’s. A mole may become: Asymmetrical, have an irregular Border, contain multiple Colors, have a Diameter greater than six millimeters and be Evolving. If you have two or more of these symptoms, contact a physician for an appointment. Having fair skin, red or blond hair, 50 or more moles and a family history of melanoma greatly increases your risk of developing this condition.
