 Skin Cancer Clinic - Incomplete Tumor Excision rate


Non-​​melanoma skin cancers such as squamous cell carcinomas and basal cell carcinomas can be treated using a variety of methods, but surgery remains the principal form of treatment used. As incomplete tumour excision portends a potentially increased risk of tumour recurrence, one of the primary goals of our dermatologic surgeons is to ensure that they are adequately excised. ​

Our rates of incomplete tumour excision for both Basal Cell Carcinomas and Squamous Cell Carcinomas show that we are consistently below the target of  4%.
