Skin cancers (including basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma and melanoma) and metastatic cancers (those that have spread from elsewhere in the body) can all grow along the scalp. To ensure the scalp cancer is removed completely, surgeons need to also take out an area of healthy scalp around the tumor, which can leave deforming scalp scars or head deformities.
Our neuroplastic team offers advanced surgical techniques that can preserve scalp and skull appearance and function without sacrificing the success of the treatment.
