  • The Curettage and Electrodesiccation – the method is used when the skin is ill by the squamous cells and the basal cells. They scrape out the tumor from the skin with the aid of a curette and an electric pointed needle. The process is repeated for about 3 times and then stitches are applied to the wound to cover it up.
  • The Mohs Surgery – when the skin cancer cells are not visible, this method is used. The skin is removed in layers and then the cells are been magnified with the help of a microscope. If the dermatologist does not find the infected cell in the layers then he keeps on removing the layers of the skin one by one until they see the cells. It is a time consuming method of healing skin cancer which can slowly- slowly spread all over the body. When this method is used, it is been said that the cancer is cured 100%. Those dermatologists who have completed their training in the mohs surgery can only perform this technique of healing the skin cancer.
