The risks of surgery for Basal Cell Carcinoma
All surgery is associated with a small risk of bleeding, and infection. Please let me know if you are regularly taking Aspirin, Plavix, or Warfarin. If the wound becomes red, or discharges after surgery, then contact my office or the hospital. Your general practitioner may also be able to provide advice. Sepsis after minor surgery is extremely rare: a patient who feels unwell with a temperature should seek urgent advice.
