Dermatological surgery includes benign (non-cancerous) and malignant (cancerous) surgery of the skin.
A dermatopathologist is a specialist in dermatology and pathology. When a dermatologist takes a sample of your skin for analysis and diagnosis, the sample is often examined by a dermatopathologist under a microscope.
Skin lesions are found on or just below the skin. Examples of skin lesions are epidermoid cysts, lipomata (benign tumour of fatty tissue), skin tags and moles.
Moles are a form of pigmented lesion. Benign (non cancerous) lesions can simply be left alone. However if your mole bothers you in any way your consultant may recommend removal (excision).
Our experienced consultants can visually assess skin lesions and (if necessary) scan them using state-of-the-art scanning equipment to analyse and detect even the smallest changes. The procedure is painless, quick and safe.
Many of our hospitals offer surgery for benign (non-cancerous) and malignant (cancerous) conditions of the skin.
The soft tissue lump service allows rapid and reliable assessment and treatment of soft tissue tumours of the limbs and torso.
