Other dermatologic procedures are used to remove or treat benign or cancerous skin lesions. Cryotherapy, curettage, cyst excision, electrodessication, phototherapy, and skin tag removal are examples of the types of methods physicians use to destruct, remove, or treat skin for a wide variety of diseases and conditions. There are other procedures such as general local anesthesia and suturing, that are routinely used in conjunction with other common dermatological procedures like skin biopsy, curettage, cyst excision.
