Mole Removal

Mole removal is usually a straightforward, minimally-invasive procedure. The ease with which it can be carried out depends on the size, shape and type of the mole.

Patients seeking mole removal do so for either medical or cosmetic reasons. New or changing moles can sometimes be a sign of skin cancer and this is the primary reason dermatologists will recommend their removal. Occasionally, however, otherwise harmless moles may catch on clothing or jewellery or be visually prominent, causing concerns with body image. In these instances, moles may also require removal after assessment and discussion.

It is important to monitor your moles and keep on top of your skin health, with expert dermatologists like Dr Anjali offering skin health checks and skincare advice. Dr Anjali also offers a number of mole removal methods depending on what’s best for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

Your mole will first be assessed to determine whether or not it is benign (harmless), after which a bespoke treatment plan will be devised for you. This may involve cutting away the mole and stitching up the wound; this technique, more formally known as surgical excision, is suitable for most moles. Alternatively, if a mole is raised, it can be shaved flat to the skin surface in a procedure called a shave excision. The mole which is removed will be sent to the pathology lab for formal testing. Everything will be discussed and explained to you during your consultation with Dr Anjali.

In most cases, mole removal can be completed in 20-30 minutes under local anaesthetic, though this depends on the size and location of your mole.

You will be provided with aftercare instructions on how to look after your wound at the time of the procedure. It is important that you refrain from heavy exercise or lifting if you have stitches to close the wound. These are normally removed in 10-14 days on the body and 5-7 days on the face but specific instructions will be given to you.

Mole removal is a medical procedure and potential risks include bleeding, discomfort, infection, and scarring. These will be discussed in detail and all possible measures will be taken to minimise the risk.

Mole removal is suitable for anyone with a changing or worrying mole after clinical assessment has been made. If you are considering a mole removal for cosmetic reasons then it is important to assess how much the lesion is impacting your daily life.

The type of treatment required depends on the nature of your mole, but most procedures cost £400-700. The pathology lab is likely to charge an additional fee for the analysis of moles removed.
