Skin Cancer Surgery and Treatments From Georgia Regents Medical Center in Augusta, Georgia

Surgery and treatments of precancerous skin lesions and skin cancers depend on the size, type, depth and location of the lesion. They include:

  • Topical medications to destroy abnormal skin cancer cells
  • Cryosurgery, or freezing of small, early skin cancers with liquid nitrogen 
  • Excisional surgery in which a surgeon removes the cancerous tissue and a surrounding margin of healthy skin
  • Laser therapy in which skin cancer growths are vaporized by a precise beam of intense light
  • Mohs Surgery
  • Radiation therapy to destroy basal and squamous cell carcinomas if skin cancer surgery isn’t an option
  • Chemotherapy, either topical or systemic
