Melanoma is a variation of skin cancer that can be fatal if left untreated. If a cancerous lesion is too large or too advanced to be treated by Mohs surgery, a dermatologist may decide that surgical excision is the most appropriate solution. During a full surgical excision, a trained surgeon removes both the cancerous tumor and the skin cells surrounding it. This ensures the melanoma is completely eradicated and unable to spread to other areas of the body.
No matter which type of cancer treatment or tumor removal method you require, you’ll be in
the hands of Aspire Dermatology’s team of experts, who are trained to eradicate skin cancer in all of its forms. We’ll work with you on an individual basis to come up with an effective treatment plan that will require as little invasive surgery as possible. Should we find that skin
cancer has spread to other areas of the body, our team is also prepared to discuss further treatment options, which may include additional surgical procedures, lymph node biopsies, and chemotherapy.
