Dr. George Henry Engel MD's Expert Contributions
  • Pilonidal cyst?

    If this lesion is small and moveable, I suggest you have it removed entirely. Do not let someone open and drain this. You should have the sac removed. READ MORE

  • Cancerous?

    This lesion is most likely not cancer......but a definitive diagnosis cannot be made without a tissue biopsy and microscopic exam. This is simple to remove and since your wife is worried about it, get it removed. Easy to do in office with a little local anesthesia and maybe 1 or 2 suture repair. It will keep peace at home!! READ MORE

  • How to prepare for Mohs surgery?

    Shower well the night before surgery. Have a light breakfast the day of surgery. Take your normal dose of medicine that you would regularly take in the morning. I would consider re-washing the area of surgery with soap and water (usually the face but any area) and relax!! The surgical area will be anesthetized and you should have little or no pain. The Dr. may prescribe pain pills afterward if necessary, but I have frequently used a small icepack or a few cubes in a plastic bag directly on the surgical area if painful. Realize that this is the very best of surgical procedures to ensure complete removal of the cancer. READ MORE
