Dear Ma'am/ Sir,

Sorry to hear about your problem. If the physician is suspecting cancer, you should not delay the biopsy and have it done as soon as possible. If it is small lesion, then whole of it can be excised in one sitting followed by reconstruction, if required. Going by the location of the lesion, it seems to be a basal cell carcinoma, which if treated in the initial stages has a very good prognosis.
