There are two types of skin lesions: benign and malignant lesions.

Benign skin lesions

In general :

Several types of lesions can occur on the epidermis. On the epidermis (naevi, keratoses,...) or subcutaneously (cysts, lipoma,...)

They can occur in all age groups and are not cancerous. They may however cause problems: they can be painful, annoying and unaesthetic.

Post-operative consultations :
- 7 to 10 days: removal of stitches
- 1,2,3 months: assessment of scar
- 6 months to 1 year: final result

Malignant skin lesions

Malignant tumour surgery has two objectives :
- complete removal of the tumour to ensure a cure
- reconstruction (plasty) to obtain an as aesthetic as possible result
