 Skin Cancer Clinic - Incomplete Tumor Excision rate

Background
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 tumor excision portends a potentially increased risk of tumor recurr​ence, ensuring that skin cancers are adequately excised remains a primary goal of our surgeons.  

Clinical Indicator

Rate of Incomplete Tumor Excision

Our rates of incomplete tumor excision for both Basal Cell Carcinomas as well as Squamous Cell Carcinomas show that we are consistently below the target of 4%. This demonstrates that the experience of our surgeons, along with adherence to recommended excision margins has been allowing us to achieve favorable incomplete tumor excision rates.
