Skin Cancer Treatment

Then you are probably affected by skin cancer and skin cancer surgery is the optimal way to getting rid of it.

Skin cancer is the most common cancer in people in the UK and around the world. Exposure to sunlight is a major factor in the development of skin cancer and the number of cases in the UK is increasing despite well-known warnings against excessive tanning.

People with fair skin have a higher risk of developing skin cancer as they are more susceptible to damage from the ultraviolet (UV) rays of the sun. The most common types are basal cell carcinomas and squamous cell carcinomas (also known as non-melanoma skin cancer), and the third most common form of cancer is malignant melanoma.

What is Skin Cancer/Skin tumors?

An abnormal and uncontrollable expansion of skin cells that often develops on the skin being exposed to harmful UV light may result in skin cancer. Mutation induced by DNA damage, skin cells dividing rapidly and uncontrollably causing the formation of tumors, masses, or neoplasms.

Protection of your skin is the best course of action, of course, but if your skin has been damaged by the sun or has changes that you find worrying, you should seek professional advice. It is a good idea to watch out for moles on the skin, as signs of malignant melanoma can manifest themselves by altering the appearance of moles.

Unlike non-melanoma skin cancer, which is slow to develop and spread, melanoma is more aggressive and poses a greater threat.

What causes skin cancer?

It is a known fact that sunlight plays a major role in causing skin cancer. The number of cases of skin cancer is increasing every year and there are warnings about excessive tanning and the dangers of sun loungers. People with fair skin (Fitzpatrick Skin Type 1-3) have a higher risk of developing skin cancer because they are more susceptible to damage from the UV rays of the sun.

You have an increased risk of skin cancer (melanoma) if you have a large number of moles. It is important to pay attention to unusual forms of the mole (over 5 mm).

Skin Cancer Diagnosis
It is arduous to differentiate between non-malignant skin diseases and skin cancer. The following tests may be prescribed to the individual to confirm the skin cancer diagnosis. 

Skin examination
Your skin will be examined by a specialist skin cancer doctor to check for any skin transformations that are more likely to be an indicator for skin cancer.

Skin Biopsy
It involves taking a tiny tissue sample from the abnormal growth through a surgical knife, and check if cancer has started spreading or not.  Fine needle aspiration biopsy, sentinel lymph node biopsy are a few techniques used for biopsy.

Once it has been established that you have skin cancer and treatment is required, Neil Toft skin cancer clinic offers a range of treatment options discussed with you during a consultation with a plastic surgeon who will assess your skin and advise you on the best treatment method. They must take part in the consultation. The treatment you are offered depends on the type of skin cancer you are suffering from, the location of the lesion, and how new it has developed.

Much depends on the type, size, location, and depth of the skin cancer lesion. A range of non-surgical skin cancer treatments are offered including topical creams and cryotherapy. Treatment options The treatment plan is very variable for skin cancer, actinic, keratosis-related, and precancerous skin lesions. Skin cancer can be removed with local anesthetic and the most common dermatological operations for the treatment of skin cancer are Mohs excision, cutterage, and electrocautery.

One or more of the following skin cancer treatments may be required:

Surgical therapy 
consists of three main procedures: freezing, excision surgery, and Mohs which is used in the treatment of all types of skin cancer.

This process is in which doctors are able to kill the actinic and keratotic forms of early-stage skin cancer using extremely cold and liquid nitrogen. This is called cryosurgery. The dead tissue of the skin detaches when it thaws.

Excisional Surgery

During the procedure, specialists may perform diagnostic punch biopsies on suspected malignant tissue in which there is diagnostic uncertainty. In most cases, doctors recommend a larger excision (removal) of the skin cancer with a small margin of surrounding normal skin to achieve clearance.

Mohs surgery

A procedure for treating recurrent or large, difficult-to-treat skin cancers. In the case of squamous cell carcinomas, skin surgery is used. It is also used where the skin is preserved as well as possible, for example in the nasal area.


During the cryotherapy procedure, the unusual skin growth is removed layer by layer. Each layer is examined for microscopic conditions, such as the time in which abnormal cells remain. The doctor uses an instrument called a circular saw blade to shave off the cancerous layer of the cells.
