Electrodesiccation and Curettage (ED&C)

Electrodesiccation and curettage (ED&C) is a procedure that is used to treat skin cancers that are primarily located on the top of the skin. It is performed in the office setting by dermatologists and other physicians and consists of scraping and “burning” away the unwanted growth.

Since this procedure does not involve the placement of sutures, or stitches, it may be more appropriate for those individuals for which stitches are not optimal.

Watch our video to learn more about how this procedure is done, and talk to your local dermatologist/physician to see if such a procedure might be right for you.
