Moles can be described as a blemish that appears on the face or body that can vary in size, shape and colour. Some moles are flat, while others can have a raised appearance. The majority of moles are usually harmless, however if you notice a change in colour or shape, or if the mole begins to irritate, then you should have it checked by a doctor as these symptoms could be signs of something more serious. Highly visible moles on the body or face can often lead to loss of confidence or embarrassment for certain individuals. Moles that restrict movement, or which are overly large, can sometimes result in pain and distress.

Skin tag is a small protruding bit of skin that often grows in the groin area, armpit, neck and eyelid.

Cyst is a sack filled with fluid or semi-fluid material. Cysts develop in various places in the body and arise from different tissues in the body.

Wart is generally a small, rough growth, typically on hands and feet but often other locations, that can resemble a cauliflower or a solid blister. They are caused by a viral infection. There are as many as 10 varieties of warts, the most common considered to be mostly harmless. It is possible to get warts from others as they are contagious and usually enter the body in an area of broken skin.They typically disappear after a few months but can last for years and can recur.

Fortunately, there are fast and straightforward procedures available for removal of the above lesions which bring a renewed sense of confidence to the patient.



Treatment

At your consultation, the lesion will be carefully examined by Dr. Shaikj who will advise the best method of removal. You should inform the doctor if there is any recent change in colour, size, surface and shape of the lesions.



Is the treatment painful?

Apart from the local anaesthetic injection which you may feel a little prick and sting at the beginning of the treatment for a second to numb the area, you should not feel any discomfort at all afterwards. However, when the treatment finishes and anaesthetic effect wears off, slight discomfort may be experienced. Normally patients are not required to take any pain killers.



What are the risks of mole removal, skin tag and wart removal?

With any cosmetic surgery procedure however there are potential side-effects such as infection, bleeding and scarring. Fortunately, with mole removal, the risks are very low and it is a safe and simple procedure



Will I have a scar after the treatment?

All skin lesion removal procedures, both surgical and Hyfrecator, will leave a small scar which is normally far less noticeable than the original mole. We use the latest techniques to ensure any scarring is minimal. Rarely, some people with very dark or light skin have an abnormal response to healing and end up with larger scars than usual (hypertrophic or keloid scars).
