Many people with moles are keen to try and get rid of them because they make them feel self-conscious. Fortunately, today’s mole removal procedures are simple and effective, which means that you may get your mole removed with minimal hassle. In fact, mole removal may be carried out in minutes. There are various factors that the doctor may consider when it comes to mole removal treatment. For instance, the doctor looks at the type of mole that needs to be removed as well as the size and location. This makes it easier to choose the most suitable mole removal solution for your specific needs.
One of the methods that may be used to remove a mole is a shave biopsy. This is a very simple process. Basically, it involves removing the mole using a special tool.
Another option is an excision biopsy, which is aimed at those that are unable to have a shave biopsy or where there is a chance that the mole may be cancerous.
This procedure is more complex than the first, as the mole has to be surgically removed and the wound does require stitches once the process has been completed. Part of the skin below the mole may also be cut, although the amount will depend on factors such as how deep the mole is and what the chances of it being cancerous are.
With both types of mole removal, caring for the treatment area post-treatment is essential for proper healing. This process helps to ensure that the healing process is faster and more successful.
