• Skin & Subcutaneous Tumours

    These include benign, such as nevus (mole), lipoma (fatty tumor) and atheroma (sebaceous cysts) and malignant changes like squamous carcinoma, the “white skin cancer” basal cell carcinoma and the “black skin cancer” melanoma.
    The malignant ones need to be removed with a large safety margin, which sometimes requires skin grafts or skin flaps. In these cases we involve our partner Prof. Dr. Boris Toderoff, specialist in plastic and reconstructive surgery (see his website) in order to achieve an optimal cosmetic result.
    We perform these operations if possible on an outpatient basis and under local anesthesia. In this area also belongs the removal of lymph nodes for histological appraisal to exclude malignancy.
