In brief: Surgical Removal

Skin tumors are usually removed by surgical excision with or without stitching afterwards.

In brief: Surgical Excision

Majority of skin cancers are treated by complete surgical removal.
Basal and squamous cell carcinomas, the most common skin cancers, are curative if removed completely. Malignant melanomas are also treated with excision. However, depending on the depth of invasion and stage of disease, some undergo sentinel lymph node biopsy/dissection followed by systemic therapies such as interferon.
