Excision of Pinna for Growth (Squamous/Basal/ Injuries)


Excision of Pinna for Growth is a surgical treatment method for outer ear skin cancer and tumours. In this condition, the ear canal and external layer of the eardrum are affected. This procedure involves the use of a lancet to completely remove the tumour affected area and the skin layer around it. The surgical wound adjoining the tumour is stitched up. Skin grafts or flaps are placed to cover the operated region.
