Skin cancers can appear in a variety of forms and locations, and possible treatment options can range from a small, non-complex procedure to major surgery. Usually, the cancer is diagnosed by a skilled physician by biopsying a portion, or all, of the growth and thoroughly examining the cells. After examination, the surgeon will discuss with you all available treatments options depending on the type and stage of the cancer. There are several surgical options available, and most are performed as an outpatient procedure with local anesthesia. The surgeons and staff at The Face & Body Center are available to discuss any questions you may have by calling 866-939-4999 or 939-9999 in the Jackson Metro Area.
