Skin cancer and reconstruction in Port Saint Lucie
What does skin cancer start off like?
Skin cancer may initially appear as a rash or irregular patch on the surface of the skin. These spots may be raised and may ooze or bleed. As the cancer grows, the size or shape of the visible skin mass may change and the cancer may grow into deeper layers of the skin.
But what does a plastic surgeon have to do with skin cancer? Although with other types of cancer a plastic surgeon will have no involvement, in skin cancer they can both remove the cancerous growth and reconstruct the skin below.
The removal of growths can be made by a dermatologist or by a plastic surgeon, but the task of reconstruction is usually undertaken by a plastic surgeon. The goal is to restore the normal form and function of the affected skin, leaving as few traces of surgery as possible.
