TREATMENT OF SKIN LESIONS
Our skin weighs 5 kg in average and is the largest organ of our body. Since it covers the other organs, can get sick, and formations in various forms can appear in or on it. The route of the treatment is determined by basing on whether the lesions on our skin are benign or malignant.

Before Treatment of Skin Lesions
The annual dermatological examination is a health check-up test that does not cause any difficulty to the patient and that should not be skipped. It is particularly important for patients with multiple skin lesions such as nevus, prolonged or severe exposure to sunlight or radiation, and a family history of skin cancer.
During the examination of structures on our skin, such as many nevus, etc., with a dermatoscope, it is often possible to have an idea whether they are benign or malignant. Lesions that are thought to be benign can be followed without removal unless they disturb the patient aesthetically, and surgery will be planned quickly for lesions that arouse suspicion of malignancy.
During Treatment of Skin Lesions
Lesions that are thought to be benign do not require treatment, but if the patient has any complains, then various treatments can be recommended. If this is a vascular formation, laser treatments or vascular drug injection can be applied.
The lesions that are 100% benign and do not have the potential to become malignant in the future can be shaved. Depending on the discomfort that it causes in the patient, partial or complete excision (surgical removal) can be applied.
Surgery is planned for the lesions that are thought to be malignant, have the potential to become malignant in the future, or are not 100% sure of not to be benign. Small lesions are immediately removed and submitted to pathology, while sampling can be performed for the large lesions and total excision can be planned, if deemed necessary, according to the result of the pathology.
After Treatment of Skin Lesions
If following the skin lesions up is recommended, it is very important that you do not postpone it. If the lesion is excised and submitted for pathological examination, then you should talk to your physician about the result. Your treatment may have been concluded, or you may need additional surgical or medical treatments.
