Squamous Cell Tarcinoma treatment
Surgery is usually the recommended dermatology treatment. Treatment of areas of scaly sun damage (actinic keratosis and Bowen’s disease) may reduce your risk of a squamous cell carcinoma.
During your appointment at Clinica London we’ll perform a full and thorough history. In addition, we’ll perform a detailed examination of your lesion. Sometimes we’ll need to examine the lesion by dermatoscopy.
As part of the investigation and management, the worrisome lesion will need a skin biopsy or skin excision. We perform this in the minor procedure room at Clinica London. The procedure involves injecting a local anaesthetic to the area and removing or sampling the area. We then send this to the histopathology laboratory for analysis. We would then bring you back to discuss all the results and what dermatology treatment you may need.
