FAQ

Can a mole be skin cancer?

Skin cancer is the formation of a malignant lesion due to abnormal cell growth. These growths predominantly affect individuals of Scandinavian or Nordic descent with fair skin that burns easily, light eye and hair color, and freckling. However, all ethnicities and skin tones can develop skin cancer. Thus, it is important to discuss any persistent facial lesions with abnormal coloration, scab or crust formation, repetitive bleeding, and/or irregularity of shape with Dr. Givens.

Can a cyst return after removal?

Cysts are encapsulated pockets of fluid, debris, or other sebaceous material that can often grow and become painful. As they enlarge, cysts tend to cause visible deformity making the patient self-conscious. If the material of the cyst is removed but the entire capsule is not, the cyst can regrow. When looking for a medical professional for this treatment, it is critical to select a fellowship-trained facial plastic surgeon, like Dr. Givens, who regularly performs cyst excision.

Do you treat cystic acne and chronic skin conditions?

While Dr. Givens has expertise in lesion removal and pre-event blemish resolution, she recommends a local board-certified dermatologist for treatment of chronic, invasive acne and other long-term inflammatory skin conditions.
