Following a mole check and consultation, your consultant may recommend a surgical excision for mole removal. In this procedure, the area will be numbed with local anaesthetic by your plastic surgeon or doctor and then an incision is made, the mole is removed and the skin is stitched together again. The lesions may be sent off to the diagnostic lab for histopathology if requested by the doctor and results return within 24 hours.
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
