How much does a Skin Cancer surgery cost?

The cost of Skin Cancer surgery is highly personalised depending upon the requirements of the patient and the outcome of the medical assessment conducted by Mr Ammar Allouni.

What is Skin Cancer surgery?

When the genetic material inside cells changes, causing them to behave differently, skin cancer develops. They can grow in size and number, resulting in the formation of a tumour. Melanoma is the most common and serious type of skin cancer, which can develop from pre-existing moles or develop as new standalone spots on the skin. Fortunately, most skin cancers can be treated successfully if they are detected early. If any worrisome moles are detected to be malignant, they must be removed by surgery as soon as possible.

What are the benefits of Skin Cancer surgery?

Surgical treatment options for skin cancer are determined by the site, kind and size of the cancerous tissue, as well as the disease's stage.

About Skin Cancer Surgery

If you have a non-cancerous mole that bothers you aesthetically, you can get it removed. After thorough assessment, if you are diagnosed with skin cancer which is potentially dangerous you should opt for skin cancer procedure.

Moles are generally removed under local anaesthesia. The region surrounding the mole is sterilized with a surgical drape around the region to guarantee a clean working environment after careful examination. Then an incision is made around the mole, typically in an oval shape. The mole(s) will be placed in a specimen jar and sent to a lab for analysis. The wound will be closed with stitches, if required, and covered with a dressing.

Skin cancer surgery is performed under local anesthetic and usually spans around 0.5 hours. Typically, there are four main types of skin cancer surgery and the surgical procedures are based on the size and type of lesion.

Cryotherapy: This entails putting the patient’s skin under extreme cold to stop new growth. Treatment with liquid nitrogen is commonly known as “freezing.” The skin cells are frozen until they die, causing the lesion to scab over and fall off. Cryotherapy is ideal for treating superficial benign tumours.

Mole shaving: A thin, razor-like instrument is used to carefully remove the afflicted mole. Mole shaving is quick, successful and requires no stitches afterward. It is a minimally invasive procedure that can be done under local anaesthesia.             

Surgical excision: The surrounding area is sterilized with a surgical drape before removing the whole mole and beneath the subcutaneous fat layer. After that, the entire mole is sliced out as well as down into the subcutaneous fat layer below. Sutures will be applied at this point. Just like moles, this sort of melanoma excision is frequently done under local anaesthesia. The procedure lasts around half an hour and you can go home after leaving the clinic. 

Mohs surgery: Mohs surgery is the most successful method for removing different forms of skin cancer. The operation works by removing numerous thin layers of malignant skin and examining each one under a microscope as it advances, until only cancer-free tissue remains.

During your first appointment at our clinic, Mr. Ammar Allouni will clarify all your questions regarding the procedure. He will recommend surgery only if it is the best option for you. You will also be encouraged to clarify any doubts regarding the recovery period, post-surgical care and the expected outcomes.

He will take your detailed medical history and conduct relevant clinical assessments, which might be followed by a 3D projection of the expected result – if surgery is indicated in your case. Additionally, he will inform you of the potential risks and complications of the surgery. 

Some of your medications might require adjustments prior to the surgery or additional drugs may be prescribed. You will be asked to discontinue drugs like aspirin and herbal medications (if any) for a few days before and after the procedure. 

Mr Ammar Allouni will also inform you about certain precautions to be taken before and after surgery. He will instruct you to quit smoking and to avoid consuming alcohol and recreational drugs for a few days before and after the surgery.

  • Pre-Surgical Care: After your full body assessment and before your surgery day you get the list of precautionary measures – what all you should avoid and what all you should do for the best results.

  • Post-Surgical Care: Mr Allouni and his team will be at your side while you are recovering.
