Benign and malignant skin tumors (melanoma, epidermoid carcinoma and basal cell carcinoma)


Cutaneous tumors have a high incidence in the population, being benign (sebaceous cyst, lipoma, nevus), or malignant such as basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma and melanoma. Benign lesions may be removed for aesthetic or functional reasons, and suspicious ones should be removed for biopsy and histopathological evaluation. Malignant lesions should be removed with safety margins, and depending on the defect after tumor removal, direct closure or reconstruction with skin grafts, locoregional flaps or free flaps may be required.
