Skin Lesion Excisions Geelong
What happens if a suspicious skin lesion is found during a Skin Check?
If our doctors find a lesion of concern, this will be discussed with you at the time of your skin check. You will also be advised at this time of the recommended next step in managing this lesion.
The options that will be discussed depend on the type of skin lesion, and include:
- Serial photography
- Cryotherapy (freezing with liquid nitrogen)
- Photodynamic therapy (PDT)
- Biopsy of part of the lesion
- Excision of the full lesion
- Referral to a specialist dermatologist or plastic surgeon for further treatment
