Skin Surgery

The ENT Partnership can assess, diagnose and treat the following conditions:

Skin Cancer | Basal Cell Carcinoma | Squamous Cell Carcinoma | Melanoma | Skin Aesthetics

Skin Cancertop
There are 3 major types of skin cancer. The 2 more common are Basal Cell Carcinoma (BCC) and Squamous Cell Carcinoma (SCC). The third and most serious is Melanoma.

Basal Cell Carcinomatop
They are also called rodent ulcers which may be treated with surgery or radiotherapy.

There are many ways to treat BCCs but probably the most effective is surgery to remove them. This allows them to be examined by a pathologist, which is useful to both confirm the diagnosis and that it has been completely removed.

Squamous Cell Carcinomatop
Squamous cell carcinomas occur less frequently than BCCs.  Although uncommon they have the ability to spread.  They can be treated with surgery or radiotherapy and again surgical treatment is often preferable.  SCCs require wider excision margins than BCCs and so small skin grafts or flaps maybe required.

Melanomas require more specialised treatment.  The most appropriate managaement is discussed at the melanoma mutli-disiplinary team meeting.
