After a mole removal treatment, you may find that the area treated is a little bit red and sore for a week and may require a dressing. If you have had any sutures or a dressing, you will need to return to the clinic after a week for a suture removal and/or a change of dressing. Your doctor will advise you to keep the area out of sunlight and to use a high SPF sunscreen on the area for about six months to avoid scarring.
Moles are small clusters of coloured skin cells, which can form anywhere on the human body. Moles are usually harmless and people can live with them without any complications. However, moles can be cancerous, so if a mole looks suspicious it must be removed for immediate examination under a microscope (histology), to eliminate the risk of it developing further.Go to Treatment
