As far as skin cancers are concerned the earlier these are diagnosed and seen the better the outcome so don’t delay seeing someone about a new or growing skin lesion.
A few new checks are now available which are able to eradicate certain types of skin cancers. If appropriate I will discuss the use of these areas instead of surgery to remove them.
Post-operative care for Mole & Skin Lesions
- These procedures will usually be done either in my rooms or in a day surgery unit if a larger lesion needs excising or if a flap needs to be used.
- You will have steristrips applied to the wound.
- Leave these strips intact until I see you again.
- I will see you for suture removal at 5 to 7 days for facial wounds and 10 to 14 days for removal on the body.
