It is best and safest to surgically remove lesions that are in any way suspicious using a scalpel. These are excised with an appropriate skin margin in order to entirely eliminate the dangerous tissue. It is a prerequisite for a properly performed procedure. Then, the lesion is sent to a laboratory for a histopathological examination, which determines whether it was a healthy or cancerous lesion.
At our Centre, skin lesion removal is performed by surgeons, paediatric surgeons, surgical oncologists and dermatologic surgeons. Such experienced specialists guarantee that any growths are precisely removed, while wounds are sutured in a way that leaves a minimal scar. Lesions are excised with an appropriate skin margin in order to entirely eliminate the dangerous tissue. Then, the removed lesion is sent to a laboratory for a histopathological examination, which allows us to make sure that the pathological lesion has been removed along with the margin of healthy tissue, that is entirely.
In addition, after suture removal, we can offer you anti-scar treatment suitable for your scar in order to minimise the risk of hypertrophic scar or keloid scar.
It is a microscopic examination of cells (cytology) or tissues (histology). Each lesion that has been cut out from the skin or subcutaneous tissue should be examined by a qualified histopathologist. Each type of removed lesion has a specific histological structure (type and layout of cells). This allows for differentiating for example between wart and fibroid or between naevus pigmentosus and malignant melanoma. This is critical in making further decisions regarding the patient treatment. A histopathological examination also allows us to make sure that the pathological lesion has been removed along with the margin of healthy tissue, that is entirely.

Preparation for the procedure
