The doctor will then discuss ab appropriate treatment if required. This will include information on costs and post care treatment.
The Mole Removal procedure usually takes around 20-30 minute, depending on the number of moles being removed. You do not require a referral for this procedure.
What is the treatment like?
The doctor will anaesthetise the area around the lesion with a local anaesthetic. Once numb the lesion is removed or shave flush with the skin. There is minimal bleeding as blood vessels are sealed off.
What can I expect after the mole is removed?
After the procedure, you will be left with a small raw area which will form a scab and naturally heal within 7-14 days. Try to leave the scab in place until it falls off keeping the area clean and dry.
