Cutaneous and subcutaneous neoplasms

Cutaneous and subcutaneous neoplasms are extremely common and are often dealt with surgically with the aim to cure them whilst also improving the aesthetic or functional aspect. It is sometimes necessary that their removal be followed by a histological examination, because the aspect of the neoplasm does not always allow the doctor to distinguish between benign and malignant lesions. Generally, the operation is carried out under local anesthesia. The removal of the neoplasm can be done either with a scalpel or with laser surgery.
