Excision of Skin Lesions

A surgical excision involves cutting a skin growth or scar out of the skin. Excisions are performed by dermatologists for diagnosing or ruling out skin diseases, and to remove cancerous growths or formations. Ensuring that a dangerous growth is completely removed is important for preventing the spread of cancer to other parts of the body. Excisions are also sometimes performed for cosmetic reasons. A local anesthetic is used to reduce discomfort or pain.
