Mole Removals?

Referral to dermatology clinic for the removal of skin lesions, on the NHS, is now getting extremely rare. As a result most people have to either wait or accept that their GP will not remove skin lesions.

What is involved?

After a consultation and examination the doctor will work with you to decide regarding the lesion.  Local anesthetic will be injected into the area and the lesion will be removed.

The skin wound may be cauterized (touched with a hot wire or silver nitrate stick) or steri-striped or bandaged depending on the size and type of the lesion.

Does it hurt?

No, the only uncomfortable part is the injection if the local anesthetic which may sting, after this the area should be anaesthetized so you should not feel any discomfort or pain.

There are a number of methods that can be used to remove lumps and bumps, which will be decided and explained to you by your doctor.

After care?

Depending on the type of lesion, it will be sent for histology if it looks abnormal. We have a close relationship with NMH and the lab will send a report of the sample back to ascertain whether the cells were normal or abnormal for the lesion removed.

Our doctor will discuss your report on the phone to you and explain and advise on further steps if necessary.
