Skin surgeries may sound like a cause for concern, but most are relatively simple and painless, especially when performed by an expert dermatologist like Dr. Goodkin.
There are several types of skin cancer, which often require a simple surgery to remove. Skin cancer surgery can be completed through excision or cryotherapy.
An excision is a procedure in which a dermatologist removes a small amount of skin, sometimes for biopsy purposes.
Moles can be removed by Dr. Goodkin for medical or cosmetic purposes.
Cysts can be removed through excisions, drainage with a needle, or other techniques.
A precancerous mole must be removed by a qualified dermatologist such as Dr. Goodkin.
In a biopsy, your dermatologist will remove a small amount of skin to send to a laboratory for further testing.
Cryotherapy involves freezing unwanted or unhealthy areas of skin using liquid nitrogen.
