Mole Removal & Histology

Appointment Duration


Appointment Description

Mole removal is a medical procedure that involves the removal of a mole from the skin. Moles are pigmented growths on the skin that can vary in size, shape, and colour. While most moles are harmless, some may be cancerous or have the potential to develop into skin cancer, so it is important to have them evaluated by a dermatologist.

There are several methods for mole removal, including surgical excision, shave removal, and laser removal. The choice of method will depend on the size, location, and characteristics of the mole, as well as the individual's preferences and medical history. Surgical excision is a common method for removing moles and involves cutting out the mole and a small margin of surrounding skin. This method is typically used for larger moles or those that have the potential to be cancerous.

After the mole is removed, the area may be stitched closed or left to heal on its own. Shave removal involves using a blade or scalpel to shave off the mole, leaving the surrounding skin intact. This method is typically used for smaller moles that are not cancerous or have a low risk of becoming cancerous. After the mole is removed, the area may be cauterized to stop any bleeding and promote healing.

Laser removal involves using a laser to destroy the pigment cells in the mole. This method is typically used for small, flat moles and may not be suitable for larger or raised moles.

After mole removal, the area may be sore, red, and swollen for a few days. It is important to keep the area clean and dry to prevent infection and follow any aftercare instructions provided by the dermatologist.

Overall, mole removal can be a safe and effective way to remove moles and prevent skin cancer. However, it is important to have moles evaluated by a dermatologist to determine the best course of action and to ensure that any cancerous or potentially cancerous moles are identified and treated promptly.
