Moles are common skin growth. However, some can become a medical concern or just be a cosmetic issue; no matter the reason, our skin experts are really good at removing moles safely. 

Why Remove a Mole?

There are several reasons why patients get moles removed; some common reasons include: 

  • Prevention 

Removing suspicious moles can help prevent the development of skin cancer, allowing for early detection and treatment.

  • Cosmetic Mole Removal 

Many individuals opt for mole removal for cosmetic reasons, enhancing their appearance and boosting confidence.

  • Discomfort 

Some moles can cause discomfort due to rubbing against clothing or during physical activities. Removing them can alleviate these issues.

Am I a Candidate for Mole Removal?

Mole removal is one of the most common and easy skin procedures, and due to this, many patients opt for the treatment; we recommend getting an assessment if: 

  • You don’t like the appearance of a mole
  • If the mole is in a place where it’s uncomfortable 
  • If the mole gets rubbed with clothing, causing irritation or redness. 
  • If you present an abnormal mole with irregular borders, asymmetrical shape or colour
  • If you have been diagnosed with skin cancer

What to Expect: How To Remove Moles?

The mole removal procedure at Manningham Skin Cancer consists of a local excision. This procedure uses local anesthesia, and it generally takes between 30-40 minutes. 

Before the procedure

Before your mole removal procedure, our expert skin doctors will assess your mole and discuss the procedure with you. They may recommend mole mapping for accurate tracking.

The day of the mole removal

On the day of the procedure, you can expect a quick and safe process. The duration depends on the number and complexity of moles being removed, but it typically ranges from 30 minutes to an hour. The process uses local anesthetic. 

After & Recovery 

After mole removal, patients can go home immediately; you may experience minor discomfort or redness at the site, which should subside within a few days. Follow post-care instructions provided by our team for optimal healing and minimal scarring.

Regular mole checks are recommended annually or more frequently if you have a history of skin cancer or many moles. Your doctor can provide personalized advice based on your skin health.

The cost of mole removal varies depending on the size, number, and location of the moles, as well as the method used for removal. It’s best to contact the clinic for a more accurate estimate based on your specific case.

Cancerous moles often exhibit signs such as asymmetry, irregular borders, multiple colors, diameter over 6mm, and changes over time (ABCDE criteria). If you notice these signs, schedule a consultation with a specialist.

Mole removal is typically performed under local anesthesia, so you should not feel pain during the procedure. Some discomfort or soreness may occur afterward but is usually manageable with pain relievers.

Scarring is a possibility with any mole removal procedure, though the extent of scarring varies based on the removal method and individual healing processes. Your doctor will discuss ways to minimise scarring.

Common risks and side effects include minor bleeding, infection, scarring, and changes in skin pigmentation. Serious complications are rare but can occur. We invite you to discuss any concerns with your doctor before the procedure.
