Facial skin tumors
Micrograpic controlled removal of malignant skin tumors
Diagnosis and surgical therapy of benign an malignant tumors of the head and facial skin including the plastic reconstruction
- Malignant skin tumors of head and face are usually removed in cooperation with a (dermatohisto)pathologist for an exact control of the cutting edges.
- Wound closure and plastic reconstruction of the skin defect is only performed with histological proven tumor-free cutting edges.
- Depending of the tumor type a simple excision up to further measures like lymph node dissection, radiation or chemotherapy might be necessary. Those patients have to be referred to a center for a multidisciplinary approach together with surgeons, dermatologists, radiotherapists and oncologists.
