How is the operation going in Istanbul & Turkey?
This procedure takes place in a doctor’s office or in a clinic. It is the dermatologist who carries out this type of treatment. A sterile scalpel is used for excision of the tumor under local anaesthesia. The surgeon then stitches the wound with a resorbable thread.
This is a surgical procedure quite practiced in Turkey and Istanbul with a success rate of almost 100%. It is necessary to respect the aseptic conditions.
Finally, the dermatologist sends the tumor to an anatomic pathology laboratory.
Why should the sample be sent to the anatomic pathology lab?
The removed cutaneous tumor must be analyzed by a specialist in pathology. The purpose is to validate a suspected skin cancer diagnosis while defining the boundaries of healthy skin and then determining the appropriate therapeutic behavior.
What are the results of this examination?
The laboratory tells us about the exact nature of the tumor:
- Benign tumors: moles, warts, keratoses, condylomas, cysts, and lipomas.
- Doubtful tumors: some benign tumors can be transformed, in case of doubt the lesion must be removed.
- Malignant tumors: epitheliomas, melanomas, and sarcomas.
