(Moles, Skin tags, Seborreic Keratosis and more…)
There are lots of different Skin lesions and here at our Medikas Clinics we offer a full skin Consultation and advice at how to treat them.
Benign skin lesion
A benign skin lesion may be either a skin tag (or papiloma), a Sebaceous Cyst, or most commonly a Seborrheic keratosis. Although not a major worry, you may choose to remove a skin lesion because you want to:
- stop the discomfort caused by rubbing on clothing
- remove an unsightly blemish on your face
- enhance the aesthetic appearance of your body
- confirm whether it is safe to keep or not
Mole types are many and various. After careful examination and a detailed review of patient history of the unwanted mole by a specialist clinician, benign pigmented moles (nevi) may be removed by laser or by surgery (excision).
Although a small white scar is common after mole removal, the cosmetic result is usually considerably better than that following healthy tissue-destructive methods such as excision and suturing.
For removal of skin tags, lumps and bumps, this can be done by excision or hyfrecator, cautery or radio surgery.
Treatments are undertaken as a sterile procedure in appropriate clinical facilities.
Mole and skin lesion removal surgery is not available on the NHS.
