There are a wide variety of surgical treatment options for skin cancers depending on the type and location of diagnosis. Recommended treatments may include:

  • Surgical removal (Excision of a skin cancer along with some of the healthy skin tissue around it).
  • Mohs micrographic surgery and reconstruction (removal of the affected area entirely while sparing the surrounding healthy skin)
  • Cryotherapy (liquid nitrogen freezing)
  • Electrodesiccation and curettage (tumor is cut from the skin and electrical current stops bleeding and destroys cancer cells).
