Skin Cancer Surgery Directory

Skin cancer is often first treated by surgical removal of the cancer. Usually this is followed by radiation to be sure cancer cells have been destroyed. Types of surgery that your doctor may recommend include complete excision, curettage and electrosurgery, Mohs procedure, cryosurgery, and laser surgery. Each type has its own benefits and risks, which your doctor will discuss with you. Follow the links below to find WebMD's comprehensive coverage about how skin cancer surgeries are performed, which types are available, what to expect, and much more.
