Skin Lesion Removal

Surgical excision, or skin lesion removal, is recommended for malignant (cancerous) and certain benign (non-cancerous) skin lesions. If you have bothersome or uncomfortable lesions, come in for skin lesion removal in Monmouth County.


What Is Skin Lesion Removal?

A skin lesion is a sore, a lump, or any other abnormal part of the skin. It may be cancerous or precancerous. A lesion removal can be done during a routine doctor’s visit or in an operating room, depending on the type and size of the lesion.

In most cases, curettage is performed after the lesion is numbed via freezing or local anesthesia. A small amount of surrounding tissue is removed as well to ensure that all malignant cells are excised.

Dr. Nagy is the best at what he does! He has a wonderful bedside manner and was extremely awesome with all of my questions. I’m a little over one week post op and already so incredibly happy with my results. The office is impeccable and beautiful. The staff is friendly and always helpful. Big shout out to Kim, she went above and beyond - from being reassuring, caring, friendly and so so patient with insane amounts of nerves and questions that I had. She’s the best! From consult to post op, they are a phenomenal team that I would highly recommend.

Ideal Candidates

The ideal candidates for skin lesion removal are men and women with warts, keratoses, moles, skin tags, melanoma, or constant skin irritation. They may want to undergo this procedure for practical or cosmetic reasons.

The Consultation

At the consultation, the doctor will check your medical history, examine your lesions, and ask about your goals. These can help determine the right lesion removal technique for you.

The Procedure

The simplest lesion removal procedures include shaving non-cancerous lesions until they are at skin level and using surgical scissors to cut off skin tags.

More complex lesion removal procedures involve getting rid of the lesion through laser therapy, surgical excision, or cryotherapy.

Most procedures take around 5 to 20 minutes or longer and are done with local anesthesia.

The Recovery Process

You will likely be able to go home right after the procedure. The treated area might feel tender and sore. Stitches will remain in place for 3 to 14 days until your next appointment, when they will be removed.

The Cost of Skin Lesion Removal

The cost of lesion removal varies depending on the number of lesions being removed, their sizes, and their locations. Its price also depends on the removal technique used.
