Excision of Mass, Complicated Procedure

Excision of a mass (complicated) is a surgical procedure to remove a growth underneath the skin that requires complex removal. There are a few reasons why a lesion might be complicated to remove, including its size, location, and other factors that require an intricate approach. A mass may necessitate removal if it is suspected to be cancerous or if it is infected or irritated. Sometimes masses are removed if there is no concern because they can become malignant in the future.

When is This Procedure Necessary?

Excision of a complex mass is medically necessary if the mass is malignant and there is a concern that it will spread to the surrounding tissue. This procedure may also be indicated when the mass’s size, location, or complexity makes removal difficult or requires specialized surgical techniques. Additionally, complex mass excision may be necessary in cases where conservative treatments such as medications or radiation therapy have proven ineffective in shrinking or eliminating the mass.

What To Expect

During the procedure, the patient will be under local or general anesthesia to ensure their comfort. The surgeon will identify the mass before the procedure to properly plan their approach. The surgeon will make an incision over the mass and will then carefully remove it. If it is considered malignant, the surgeon will remove the surrounding tissue to prevent it from spreading additionally. This procedure is considered complex if the mass is large, is near a structure, or has spread. When the goal of the procedure has been achieved, the surgeon will close the incision and the patient will be monitored as they are removed from the anesthesia.

After the procedure, patients may experience pain around the area which is manageable through a course of prescribed pain medications. If the excision involves a biopsy, patients can expect results within 1-2 weeks. Patients should report any irregular symptoms such as swelling or infection to their doctor.
