Skin cancer and reconstruction in Saint Lucie County
What is the primary symptom of any skin cancer?
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.
Skin cancer is most typically managed surgically with excision and simultaneous reconstruction. Often, this procedure is performed in the office with a pathologist on-site to provide immediate feedback on the lesion and the adequacy of the resection prior to the defect’s reconstruction. More complex cases may require staged reconstruction.
