  • Are there stitches involved?

    Are there stitches involved? 

    Sutures are used for closure of ellipse excisions, and these need to be removed at 7-14 days, depending on the site.  Most are removed at day 7 but lower legs take longer to heal. 

    Do I need to come back to have the stitches removed?

    Deep sutures dissolve by themselves over an extended period of time, however if they poke out through the skin at any stage in the healing process, they are usually removed to allow the wound to close completely. 

    Shave excisions do not need sutures and heal up like a graze wound with appropriate dressings and wound care.

    Understanding the Mole Removal Process

    What is mole removal, and why is it done?

    Mole removal is a procedure performed to eliminate unwanted or suspicious moles from the skin. It is usually done for medical reasons, such as assessing a mole for skin cancer risk or removing a bothersome or aesthetically unpleasing mole.

    What are the different methods of mole removal?

    There are various methods of mole removal, including excision, where the mole is cut out with a scalpel, and laser removal, which uses high-intensity light to vaporise the mole. Another method is shaving, which involves using a blade to "shave" off the mole from the surface of the skin.

    What is the importance of biopsy after mole removal?

    Biopsy post-mole removal is crucial to determine if the removed mole was cancerous or precancerous. It helps in providing information about the nature of the mole cells and guides further treatment if needed.

    Scar Management After Mole Removal

    How do you care for the wound and scar post-mole removal?

    After mole removal, it is essential to keep the wound clean and covered with a sterile bandage. Proper wound care helps prevent infection and promotes effective healing, leading to minimal scarring.

    When do the stitches from mole removal usually come out?

    The timeline for stitches removal after mole removal varies from patient to patient. Typically, stitches are removed within 1 to 2 weeks, depending on the location of the mole and the healing progress.

    What can affect the appearance of the scar after mole removal?

    Factors such as the size and depth of the mole, the healing process, and individual skin characteristics can influence the scar appearance after mole removal. Proper wound care and scar management techniques can help in reducing scar visibility.

    Healing Process and Mole Removal Aftercare

    What is the typical healing time after mole removal?

    The healing time after mole removal varies but usually takes 2–4 weeks for the wound to completely heal. During this period, proper aftercare practices are crucial for optimal healing.

    What are the recommended ointments or bandages for aftercare?

    Ointments like petroleum jelly and sterile bandages are commonly recommended for aftercare post-mole removal. They help in keeping the wound moist and protected, promoting faster healing.

    How do we recognise signs of infection during the healing process?

    Signs of infection post-mole removal include increased redness, swelling, warmth around the wound, and pus drainage. If any of these signs are observed, it is important to seek medical attention promptly.

    Risks and Complications of Mole Removal

    What are the potential risks associated with mole removal?

    Potential risks of mole removal include infection, scarring, bleeding, allergic reactions to anesthesia, and rare complications such as nerve damage. These risks can be minimised by following proper pre and post-operative care instructions.

    Is there a risk of skin cancer recurrence after mole removal?

    While the risk of skin cancer recurrence after mole removal is low, regular skin examinations and monitoring for any new or changing moles are important for the early detection of potential skin cancer.

    How do we monitor the area for any signs of melanoma post-mole removal?

    Regularly inspecting the area where the mole was removed for any signs of melanoma, such as changes in color, shape, or size, is crucial. Any suspicious changes should be reported to a healthcare provider promptly.

    Expectations Following Mole Removal Surgery

    What can one expect in terms of scarring after mole removal?

    The extent of scarring after mole removal varies depending on factors like wound care, scar management, and individual healing responses. Proper care can help in minimising the appearance of scars.

    Does the location of the mole impact healing time?

    The location of the mole can affect healing time, with areas of the body that experience more movement or friction taking longer to heal. Following care instructions and keeping the wound clean are essential for timely healing.

    When should one seek medical attention post-mole removal?

    If any unusual symptoms like excessive pain, bleeding, signs of infection, or concerning changes in the wound or surrounding skin are observed post-mole removal, prompt medical attention should be sought.

  • How do I reduce scaring from my recent skin cancer removal?

    The Melanoma Scan doctor and nurse will give you detailed instructions on how to care for your wound to reduce scarring. 

    Any procedure to remove a skin cancer will cause a scar and some people will scar more than others depending on their tendency towards keloid scarring and their skin type.  Scars tend to settle to a pale mark, either a oval area after curettage and cautery or as a line from excisional skin surgery.  If there is a lot of background sun damage, this pale area can become more prominent and noticeable.  Background sun damage can include solar keratosis, freckles, pigmentation, age spots and telangiectasias (dilated small vessels on the skin surface).  All of these lesions can be treated, either as individual lesions or as part of a field treatment such as efudix, PDT, lazer, IPL or skin peels. 

  • How long do I need to keep my wound covered after surgery?

    There are a variety of wound care regimes used after surgery.  Some areas are difficult to cover, and may be left without a dressing and the wound covered with antibiotic ointment.  This may include scalps, eyelids and beard areas.  Most wounds benefit from being covered because it can keep the area clean and help wick away any blood or fluid leaking from the wound. Our routine wound dressing involves application of antibiotic ointment, kaltostat (a dressing that reduces bleeding), then a protective dressing.  This can be left intact until removal of suture time in 7 days if kept clean and dry.  An ice pack or pressure dressing may be applied if necessary to reduce bleeding risk and protect the area.

    Skin Cancer Aftercare Guide: Tips for Non-Melanoma Skin Cancer

    Skin cancer is a serious condition that affects millions of people worldwide. Understanding the various aspects of skin cancer, including non-melanoma skin cancer, is crucial for effective treatment and aftercare. Non-melanoma skin cancer develops when abnormal skin cells grow uncontrollably. These cancer cells can form tumours and invade surrounding tissues if not treated promptly. The most common types of non-melanoma skin cancer are basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma.

    After undergoing skin cancer treatment, proper post-treatment care is essential for effective healing. Wound care post-excision or curettage involves keeping the wound clean and moist to promote healing. It is important to wash the wound gently with mild soap and water, pat it dry and apply antibiotic ointment or petroleum jelly to prevent infections. Covering the wound with a bandage helps protect it from external elements and speeds up the healing process.

    During the healing process, it is crucial to monitor the signs of proper healing after skin cancer treatment. These signs include the formation of a scab, which indicates that the wound is healing. It typically takes several weeks for scars to heal post-skin cancer removal. To aid in the healing process, it is essential to follow the dermatologist's instructions carefully, avoid exposing the wound to sunlight and refrain from picking at the scab.

    To prevent complications during the skin cancer aftercare period, it is important to take steps to avoid infections around the wound site. Following recommended wound care practices and keeping the wound clean and covered can help reduce the risk of infections. If any signs of infection, such as redness, swelling or pus, develop, it is crucial to seek medical attention promptly to prevent further complications.

    Long-term skin cancer management involves regular follow-up appointments with a dermatologist to monitor any changes in the skin and detect potential issues early. Skin cancer survivors should also take proactive measures to protect their skin from future skin cancer development. This includes wearing sunscreen, avoiding excessive sun exposure and regularly examining the skin for any changes or abnormalities.

    For basal cell and squamous cell skin cancers, specific aftercare strategies are recommended to promote healing and reduce the risk of recurrence. These may include using antibiotic ointments, keeping the wound moist and following proper wound care practices. It is essential to call your doctor if you experience any unusual symptoms or complications during the healing process to ensure that the cancer has been completely removed and to address any issues promptly.

  • How long does it take to have a mole removed?

    Mole removal occurs it two ways, either a shave excision, which is very quick, or formal ellipse excision, which takes a little longer.  Shave excision is a technique that involves putting a small amount of local anaesthetic under the mole and then using either a straight or curved blade, which is passed through the skin directly under the mole, resulting in the mole being removed with a narrow margin of normal tissue under and around it.  Occasionally, if the mole is being removed for benign reasons (for example, it is raised and gets in the way of shaving and repeatedly traumatised) the doctor may remove the raised part of the mole and leave a small amount of mole tissue behind, in an effort to minimise any visible scar or depression left by the mole removal.  This procedure normally takes between two minutes and 5 minutes to do, using low sting local anaesthetic, which has the dual advantages of hurting less and giving almost immediate numbing to superficial lesions like a mole.  This type of mole removal can often be incorporated into a skin check or 15 minute procedure time.

    Formal ellipse excision takes a little longer, because a larger area of skin needs to be numbed, and a formal excision setup needs to be done by the doctor or nurse. The mole needs to be removed as an ellipse of skin (boat shaped piece of skin removed) and the wound sutured, usually in two layers, closing both deep and superficial parts of the skin, minimising the risk of scar stretching and tram track marks being left behind from the sutures.  A typical mole removal using this technique takes about fifteen minutes to perform when assisted by a nurse, or 25 minutes without the assistance of a nurse. 

    Is it a standard procedure time?

    A shave excision can be done in a standard 15 minute appointment, however, an ellipse excision is usually booked into a 30 minute procedure appointment, so it depends on the technique that you have discussed with your doctor.

  • How long will it take to heal?

    The healing time is different for the two different types of mole removal and the location, and also the reason for the excision.  The healing time of a cosmetic mole removal on a face can be 7-10 days, during which there will be a scab form and then fall off as the skin heals up under the scab.  A deep shave excision for testing for possible melanoma is a much deeper and wider shave excision and depending on the location on the body, can take between 2 and 4 weeks to heal.  There can be a risk of infection on the lower leg with this technique (or any excision on the lower leg) due to poor immune function and blood supply on the lower leg, which can further delay healing.

    Ellipse excision on the face takes 7 days to heal enough for sutures to be removed, and other parts of the body usually take between 7 and 14 days to heal to the point where sutures can be removed. However, this is only the early stage of healing, with deep sutures continuing to support the wound for the next 6 weeks until further strength has developed in the wound.  During this time, sporting activities, lifting, carrying, bending and squatting need to be avoided depending on the location of the wound, and the wound needs to be supported with taping with micropore tape or similar. Wound can be as little as at 10% of their eventual strength at day 7 without supportive deep sutures, and can reach 80% of their eventual strength at 3 months, hence the need to continue taping for an extended period and limit physical exertion, especially on the area affected by the surgery.

    Melanoma Scan - Skin Cancer Clinic

    Understanding that skin cancer is a type of cancer that originates in the skin cells is crucial. Skin cancer is the abnormal growth of skin cells, often as a result of damage caused by exposure to ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun or tanning beds.

    There are several types of skin cancer, including basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and melanoma, each with varying risks and characteristics. Basal cell carcinoma is the most common and least dangerous, while melanoma is the most aggressive form of skin cancer.

    The risks and complications associated with skin cancer can range from mild to severe, depending on the type and stage of the cancer. Early detection and effective treatment are essential in managing these risks and reducing the chances of complications.

    Wound Care After Skin Cancer Excision

    Following skin cancer excision, it is vital to adhere to specific care instructions to promote proper healing and prevent infections. Your healthcare provider will provide detailed post-procedure care guidelines tailored to your individual case.

    Wound care plays a crucial role in the recovery process after skin cancer excision. Proper wound care tips include keeping the wound clean and dry, changing bandages regularly, and applying recommended ointments such as petroleum jelly to aid in healing.

    Knowing when to seek help is essential during the recovery phase. If you experience excessive pain, swelling, redness, or drainage from the wound site, contact your healthcare provider immediately for guidance and assistance.

    Scar Management and Suture Removal

    Scar prevention and treatment are key aspects of managing the aftermath of skin cancer excision. Techniques such as massaging the scar tissue, applying silicone sheets, and using sunscreen to protect the area from UV exposure can help minimise scarring.

    In some cases, skin grafts or flaps may be necessary to repair significant defects following skin cancer surgery. These procedures involve moving healthy skin from one area of the body to the site of excision to promote optimal healing and cosmetic outcomes.

    The suture removal process is typically carried out by a healthcare professional to ensure proper wound closure. Following the removal of sutures, continued wound care is essential to support the healing process.

    Aftercare for Different Types of Skin Cancer

    After skin cancer excision, the aftercare process may vary depending on the type of skin cancer that was removed. For basal cell carcinoma, routine follow-up appointments with your skin cancer doctor is necessary to monitor for recurrence and address any concerns.

    For squamous cell carcinoma, post-care instructions may involve regular skin checks, sun protection practices, and monitoring any changes in the surrounding skin. Early detection of any abnormalities is critical in preventing the spread of cancer.

    After the excision of melanoma, close monitoring for any signs of recurrence or metastasis is essential. This may involve additional imaging studies, blood tests, and ongoing discussions with your medical team to ensure comprehensive aftercare.

  • I have been diagnosed with skin cancer, what’s next?

    After a diagnosis of skin cancer the doctor will discuss treatment options, which may be as simple as a 5 minute procedure to perform curettage and cautery to the lesion, or a surgical procedure to formally excise the lesion with appropriate margins.  Most excisions are done as an elipse and suture ie the lesion is cut out as a boat shape of skin, and the edges brought together using a combination of deep dissolving and superficial sutures which are removed a week later.  Occasionally for more difficult or cosmetically sensitive areas, a flap or a graft may need to be used to maintain a normal appearance or function post skin cancer excision.  Sometimes radiotherapy or further testing may be needed for high risk lesions.

    What is Radiotherapy?

    Radiotherapy is often used where there is an inoperable lesion or where surgery is not practical such as peri- neural invasion of cancer. High risk cases of melanoma may warrant testing with CT scans, PET scans, or sentinel lymph node biopsy. 

    Your doctor will inform you about the nature of the cancer you have and if further testing and or treatment is necessary.

    Skin Cancer and Melanoma Skin Cancer Diagnosis

    What are the symptoms of skin cancer?

    Skin cancer can manifest in various ways, but common signs include changes in the size, shape or colour of moles or spots on the skin. It is essential to be vigilant for any new growths, sores that do not heal, or unusual bleeding, as these could be indications of skin cancer.

    What are the different types of skin cancer?

    Skin cancer is broadly categorised into melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancer. Melanoma is a serious type of skin cancer originating from melanocytes, while non-melanoma skin cancers, such as basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma, are more common but generally less aggressive.

    How is skin cancer diagnosed?

    Diagnosis of skin cancer typically involves a skin examination by a healthcare provider, where suspicious areas are assessed. If necessary, a skin biopsy may be recommended to confirm the presence of cancer cells and determine the type of skin cancer.

    What are the treatment options for skin cancer?

    Treatment options for skin cancer depend on various factors, such as the type and stage of cancer. Common approaches include surgery to remove cancerous tissue, radiation therapy to kill cancer cells, and chemotherapy to treat cancer that has spread to other parts of the body.

    How is melanoma skin cancer treated?

    Melanoma skin cancer may require more aggressive treatment than non-melanoma skin cancers. Treatment options can include surgery, targeted therapy, immunotherapy, and sometimes radiation therapy, depending on the extent of the disease and the individual's overall health.

    What are the complications of Skin Cancer treatment?

    While treatment for skin cancer is generally effective, some individuals may experience complications such as infection at the surgical site, scarring or side effects from radiation or chemotherapy. These complications are typically managed by healthcare providers to ensure the best possible outcome for the patient.

    Why is early diagnosis of skin cancer important?

    Early diagnosis of skin cancer is crucial as it can significantly improve the prognosis and increase the likelihood of successful treatment. When cancer is detected at an early stage, it is often more manageable and may require less aggressive treatment.

    What are the risks if skin cancer is not diagnosed early?

    Delayed diagnosis of skin cancer can result in cancer cells spreading to other parts of the body, making treatment more challenging and decreasing the chances of a favourable outcome. Timely detection and intervention are key in preventing the progression of the disease.

    How can individuals protect their skin to prevent skin cancer?

    To reduce the risk of developing skin cancer, individuals should protect their skin from harmful UV rays by using sunscreen, wearing protective clothing, and seeking shade during peak sun hours. Regular self-examinations and skin checks by healthcare professionals are also essential for early detection.

    When should you get your skin checked for skin cancer?

    What is the recommended frequency of skin checks for early detection?

    It is advisable to have regular skin checks, especially if you have a history of skin cancer, significant sun exposure, or a family history of the disease. Dermatologists recommend annual skin exams for most individuals to ensure early detection of any suspicious changes.

    How can you perform self-examinations to check for skin cancer?

    Self-examinations involve carefully inspecting your skin for any changes, including the development of new moles or spots, changes in existing moles or unusual skin growths. It is important to be vigilant and seek medical attention if you notice any worrisome signs.

    What are the signs that indicate you should see a dermatologist for a skin check?

    If you notice any new or changing spots on your skin, experience persistent itching or bleeding or have a family history of skin cancer, it is advisable to consult a dermatologist for a comprehensive skin check. Early detection can significantly improve treatment outcomes.

    What is a skin biopsy and how is it used in skin cancer diagnosis?

    What is the procedure for a skin biopsy?

    A skin biopsy involves the removal of a small sample of skin tissue for examination under a microscope. The procedure is typically performed under local anesthesia and can help determine whether cancer cells are present, the type of skin cancer and the extent of the disease.

    How are the results of a skin biopsy used in diagnosing skin cancer?

    The results of a skin biopsy play a crucial role in diagnosing skin cancer, as they provide information about the presence of cancer cells, their characteristics and how advanced the disease may be. This information guides healthcare providers in developing an appropriate treatment plan.

    What are the different types of skin biopsies, and when are they used?

    Different types of skin biopsies include shave biopsy, punch biopsy and excisional biopsy, each used depending on the suspected nature of the skin condition. Shave biopsies are commonly performed for superficial lesions, while punch or excisional biopsies are used for deeper or larger lesions.

     

  • If I have a lot of moles, does my risk of melanoma increase?

    Large numbers of moles are associated with both a genetic predisposition to mole formation, and an increased sun exposure in childhood as a trigger for mole formation. 

    Moles in at risk individuals, tend to cluster in areas of previous sun exposure and sun damage, including areas that have been sunburnt in the past.  In this way, large numbers of moles can act as a marker for people at increased risk of both melanoma and non melanoma skin cancer (such as BCC and SCC). 

    If you have large numbers of moles, particularly if you have odd looking or asymmetric appearing moles, then a regular (at least annual) skin check with an experienced skin cancer doctor is recommended because you may be at higher risk of melanoma, particularly with advancing age, although melanoma can occur in any age group.
