Simple excision can be used to eliminate skin growths. The simple excision technique is vital, specially in cases where a growth or lesion is malignant. This growth or lesion is taken out and eliminated with a simple excision. To alleviate any discomfort, local anesthesia is administered to the region of interest prior to the excision. Using a surgical blade, a dermatologist will remove the lesion and a margin of normal-appearing skin before closing the area with healthcare grade special glue or stitches. This removed tissue is then taken for lab analysis in order to determine the cause of the growth.
