How to remove a mole?
When assessing for mole removal, patient safety is the number one consideration. Doctors at our clinic would assess if a mole is beginning to show signs of malignancy before deciding which method to use.
For moles with suspicious signs of skin cancer (in particular melanoma or pigmented Basal Cell Carcinoma), the lesion is first biopsied to determine its nature before deciding which mole removal technique we use
For suspicious lesions, traditional surgical excision with primary closure with suturing is the method of choice and the whole excised mole is sent for histopathological examination.
