Skin Cancer – San Francisco Shave Biopsy

If you have a suspicious skin lesion, it’s vital that you come to a professional to learn more about the nature of the lesion. We can perform a shave biopsy to analyze your skin lesion and make sure it is not a malignant skin cancer. It may instead simply be a benign lesion, which involves a different type of treatment than skin cancers would.

The shave biopsy is a simple procedure in which we collect a small sample of the cells of the lesion. This sample is given to a pathologist, who studies the cells of the sample under a microscope and ensures that the lesion is not skin cancer.

Dr. Corey Maas, double-board-certified in Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery as well as Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery, will explain more about our available biopsy procedures and your skin cancer treatment options. To make an appointment, contact our office.
