In brief: Yes--

That's the kind of thing I do very frequently.
Small skin cancers on the nose can be removed and reconstructed with local tissue giving an excellent cosmetic result.

In brief: Absolutely

Small or large we can remove them or work with a dermatologist and rebuild the nose after the cancer has been removed.

In brief: Yes

Ca require small amounts of skin removal for margins then local flap or skin grafts can be used to cover the defect.

skin cancer should be removed together with aa acceptable margin so it will not come back. Repair can be with a flap or graft. Good luck
