What happens during mole removal?

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.
