    Treatment characteristics

    Benign skin tumours are growths that occur, for different reasons, in any of the layers of the dermis on any part of the body.

    There are different types of benign skin tumours:

    • Epidermal tumours
    • Skin cysts
    • Tumours with sebaceous differentiation
    • Tumours with eccrine differentiation
    • Tumours of the dermis and subcutaneous tissues
    • Vascular tumors

    Depending on the type, there are different treatments: surgical excision, cryotherapy, electrodesiccation and curettage, chemical or mechanical dermabrasion, shaving…

    Of these, surgical excision is the treatment in which the lesion is removed by surgery.

    The doctor will apply a local anaesthetic or conscious sedation, depending on the location of the tumour, make an incision and remove the tumour mass and surrounding area if he considers it necessary and then stitch it up.
    Generally, it is not necessary to stay in hospital after these small operations, which usually do not take more than 15 or 20 minutes.

    The result of the excision is the total removal of the lesion thus eliminating the discomfort it caused.

    You will have to stay in Spain for one or two weeks, depending on when the doctor indicates that the stitches will be removed.

    Treatment itinerary

    Before treatment

    • Check that you have prepared all the personal documentation (credit card, cash, passport, Identity Card…), medical (reports, prescriptions, images…) and travel (confirmation of accommodation booking, travel tickets…)​.
    • If you take medication of any kind not related to the surgery, do not forget to take with you the necessary amount for your stay in Spain, as well as the medical prescription that will allow you to travel with it without problems.​

    During treatment

    • Once you are in Spain, you will have to make an appointment with your specialist. During this visit, the doctor will open your medical record (for which you will be asked to provide all your medical documentation), perform a physical examination and tell you if any further tests are needed to confirm the diagnosis.​
    • If it is not necessary and everything is confirmed, your doctor will tell you when you must go to the preoperative study and will confirm the time of admission for the day of your surgery.​
    • If the surgeon has told you to stop taking any medication a few days before the surgery, such as anticoagulants, please do not forget to follow the exact instructions given by the doctor or you will not be able to have the operation!​

    After treatment

    • After your discharge from the hospital you should avoid physical exertion involving the area where you had the excision for a week and keep the wound clean and dry.
    • Remember that your recovery time will vary depending on your age, your physical condition, your lifestyle habits and your attitude.
    • Keep in mind that your successful recovery also depends on you.
