I went to my primary care physician about a growth on my scalp, which he called a hemangioma, and then sent me to another doctor to remove it. This other doctor says that I need to have a "light" general anesthesia applied during the removal process, but to me it seems like a local anesthesia would be less risky and work just as well (I have friends who have had similar removals off of the scalp and only a local was used ... I even asked a friend who is a doc in another state and she said it sounded like overkill and does add more risk for me). So, my main question is should I just go get a second opinion and would it be better to go to a dermatologist? Also, the doc who wants to uses this "light" general stated to me that "there are no more risks involved for a 'light' general than would be for a local" ... is that statement true?
