Hello and welcome I'm Dr Chip
Were exactly is the lump?
Only if this were on the face or the ear would I see a need for a plastic surgeon
Normally a dermatologist would perform a wide excision under local anesthesia and not refer the patient to a surgeon
Not that the plastic surgeon couldn't do this, but I think that's overkill
Please let me know if you need any more information
Yes, he would, but many dermatologists also do that
Please remember to rate my service to you
Since this rarely spreads the prognosis is excellent for cure
