At Cairns Plastic Surgery, we provide both surgical and non-surgical treatments of skin cancer. Distinguishing between the two is dependent on the type of skin cancer as well as the size of the affected area.
Surgical skin cancer removal
Surgical skin cancer removal involves cutting out the skin cancer, along with a margin of surrounding healthy skin to help ensure all dangerous cells are removed. Depending on the size of the excision, the site can either be sutured, or it may need a tissue flap or skin graft.
Non-surgical skin cancer removal
Dr Hertess and her team provide specialist skin cancer services and care for pensioners, and members of the DVA. To find out more information on how we can help you please do not hesitate to contact us today!
