Many people suffer from lumps or bumps on the surface of their skin or inside the skin layers. These skin abnormalities may be classified as skin tags, skin warts or skin moles and can be easily removed by one of our experts for health and aesthetic reasons.

You should never ignore skin bumps in the hope that they may go away on their own. Where your skin is concerned, it’s always better to be safe than sorry.

Our skin warts and skin mole treatments are chosen primarily for aesthetic reasons, but from time to time special medical attention is required. In the case of cysts and ganglions, a removal may be necessary if they are causing other symptoms.

Whatever your personal circumstances, expert dermatologists at the Cadogan Clinic can assess your condition and recommend the best type of treatment to suit your requirements at our state-of-the-art, purpose-built, central London facility.
