Removal of benign lesion on the skin, excision-malignant lesions on the skin, repair of superficial wound, excision of tumor from face or scalp, suture of nerve in hand.
A skin lesion is any alteration in the normal skin architecture. Lesions can be benign, pre-malignant or malignant. The most common malignant skin cancer lesions are Basal Cell Carcinomas (BCC), Squamous Cell Carcinomas (SCC) and Melanomas, however excisional surgery may be appropriate for any type of skin cancer. Your doctor cuts out (excises) the cancerous tissue and a surrounding margin of healthy skin. Surgical excision is recommended for cancer prevention and to halt cancer progression.
Carpal tunnel syndrome affects the median nerve distribution, producing symptoms that include numbness, tingling, and pain, as well as functional deficits.
