Skin Lesions Removal
There are many different types of lesions that can appear on the skin, some that can be cancerous or pre-cancerous. There are hundreds of different lesions, mostly benign, that may have health and aesthetic implications. From irregular moles to dry, scaly patches of skin, lesions are more common on the face and neck, which have more exposure to UV rays. If you have a growth on your skin, it may be time to consider treatment. Dallas Facial Plastic Surgery Center offers skin lesions removal at our facility in Irving, TX.
Symptoms of Pre-Cancerous Skin Lesions
Skin cancer is a deadly disease, but it can be effectively treated in the early stages. The best method for avoiding skin cancer is preventive measures. Avoiding excessive sun exposure, wearing sunscreen and performing skin examinations are prudent measures for prevention. When a suspicious skin lesion appears, it may be best to have it removed. Symptoms of pre-cancerous skin lesions include:
- Patches of dry or scaly skin
- Raised above the skin
- Texture similar to warts
- Vary in color
Pre-cancerous lesions do not always become malignant. But it may be recommended to have them removed as a preventive measure. They may also be unattractive when they appear on your face or neck.
Skin Lesion and Cancer Removal
There are various options for removing pre-cancerous skin lesions. Depending on the size and location, surgical or non-surgical methods may be used. Some lesions can be effectively eliminated with laser or light treatments. Cryotherapy and excision methods can also be used.
