Tattoo removal is a treatment for all signs and symptoms of skin cancer. However, it is not for all cases, and it is important to understand the specific medical condition of each individual with tattoos or other body piercing.
This article attempts to describe the treatment that has been proven to work and is currently available to people from all over the world. It is also intended to serve as a guide for those who are looking to learn more about this potentially life-saving procedure.
What is Tattoo Removal?
Tattoos can cause cancer. In the course of years, the skin around your tattoo may become more visible, allowing some cancers to appear. The exact form of cancer you develop depends on the kind of tattoo you have and the location of your tattoo. Tattoolabs does not remove any cancer, but reduces the amount of skin that appears or grows over the tattoo. It is a one-way process, that is, if cancer is removed from that area the skin will return to normal on the other side.
The treatment is generally a combination of various treatments, which are individually described in the following sections.
Antibiotics – This is the most commonly used strategy to control or minimize the growth of any type of skin cancer, and is best used when a person has a history of skin cancer and is already taking medications for another skin cancer, such as a skin cancer called pustular melanoma (which has the same symptoms, but tends to develop in the summer).
Tubectomy – This is the procedure used to remove the majority of the cancer and its surrounding skin tissue, either completely or in a small area. The surgeon also treats the areas of inflammation and scarring that form. This type of surgery tends to be quite invasive. (It may also be used on people who have had surgery to remove their entire breasts.) Tubal ligation is typically performed under general anesthesia, sometimes under general anesthesia during surgery, although sometimes general anesthesia is not needed. Tubal ligation is performed by cutting off the fallopian tubes as well as part of the fallopian tubes (where the eggs are stored), in order to remove the cancer. This removes a small bit of the cancer and its surrounding skin. It leaves the remaining part of the skin behind for the patient to grow back in to their normal size. The skin then heals from the original cancer, and the person will be able to have regular hair growth for the next few years. After this healing process, both the cancer
