Surgical dermatology services at Khrom Dermatology & Aesthetics
The appropriate treatment for skin cancer depends on the type of cancer that is found, its size, its location on your body, and whether it has spread.
- Excision – in this type of surgery, the tumor is cut out, along with a healthy margin of skin around the lesion to ensure that the cancerous cells do not spread
- Currettage and electrodesiccation – Dr. Khrom scrapes the tumor away from the skin’s surface and then the remaining cancer cells are destroyed with an electric needle
- Mohs surgery – in this specialized technique, the cancerous tissue is removed layer by layer until no more cancer cells are found; it preserves as much healthy tissue as possible
If you have a suspicious spot on your skin or have been diagnosed with skin cancer, we encourage you to call Khrom Dermatology and Aesthetics at 718-751-0674 to schedule a consultation today.
