Take a good look at others around you. You’ll notice that most people have visible moles. They’re common. Some have quite a few while others only have one or two. Usually, they aren’t a concern. However, some moles pose a health risk because they are cancerous or could develop into cancer. Other moles are completely harmless but make a person feel self-conscious. If you have a mole that is bothering you, mole removal may be the best choice for you. It can give you peace of mind if you are at risk for skin cancer. It can also make you feel better about the appearance of your skin when that mole is gone.
How is a Mole Removed?
Mole removal is a simple procedure. You can expect it to be performed in the comfort of our office in Melbourne. The most common way to eliminate moles is excision. A local anesthetic can be applied first to make sure your skin is numb. The mole can then be removed using specialized techniques.
What Happens Next?
If there is any concern that your mole is cancerous, it may be sent to a lab for testing. If you have skin cancer, you can then learn about your treatment options. If you opted for mole removal for aesthetic purposes, no further action is typically necessary.
Pay Attention to Your Moles
While it is normal to have moles, developing moles when you are older is a concern. It’s always a good idea to check your body regularly to see if you have noticed any changes with your skin.
