What to Expect

We offer surgical excisions for benign and cancerous growths in the comfort of our office.

If you have a bothersome or cancerous lesion, Dr. Derrington evaluates whether it can be treated surgically. A standard surgical excision takes 30 minutes. First, you are numbed with local anesthetic, then the lesion is excised with a scalpel leaving you with a straight line of sutures. Most sutures are hidden under the skin and dissolve over 2-4 weeks. The excised lesions are sent to the pathology lab for definitive diagnosis. It is advisable to limit strenuous activity for 2 weeks after surgery to allow the wound to heal.
