For patients with abnormal growths on their skin, Dr. Sofonio offers advanced treatments for skin lesions and tumors of all types. When detected early, skin tumors can be curable and removable, causing minimal damage and discomfort.
Skin Tumor Removal
If your biopsy has revealed a skin cancer diagnosis, you are at higher risk of developing further skin cancers the longer you do nothing to remove your tumor or cancerous cells. Like skin lesion removal procedures, skin tumor removal procedures may be performed in various ways ranging from excisions to surgery.
Depending on your skin tumor’s size and location, sometimes a combination of treatments may be the ideal approach. If Dr. Sofonio feels your tumor cannot be safely removed using his specialized techniques, a referral to a multidisciplinary team of cancer specialists may be recommended.
However, if you do require a skin tumor procedure at our office, you can rest assured that every effort will be taken to reduce your chances of scarring or disfigurement after surgery.
