Some skin masses are benign and easily removed without the necessity for large surgical margins. If you have a client and patient with a mass that concerns you ie.. it requires large surgical margins I would love to help.
There is quite a large list of soft tissues masses that can be resolved in the first surgery if large surgical margins 2-3 cm are taken. Some examples of these are mast cell tumors grade I & II; hemangiopericytomas;soft tissue sarcomas, melanomas, squamous cell carcinomas, mammary adenocarcinomas ect... Surgical margins include the tissue next to the tumor as well as deep or underneath the tumor. This may seem difficult to achieve but in many cases can be achieved with the help of skin flaps. Once the mass has been incompletely excised a successful second surgery can be difficult or impossible as it would be necessary to removed the entire scar with margins.
I would love to be available for consultations prior to surgery or perform the surgery for you at your hospital.
