Mole/Cyst Removal

Moles, skin tags, lesions and cysts are all extremely common skin abnormalities. There are so many different types of these lesions that whilst some people are untroubled by them, others prefer to have them removed – particularly if they cause irritation. The moles, skin tags, lesions and cysts are surgically removed.
Cysts are closed sacs that produce firm swellings beneath the skin. Cysts may become infected and require treatment with anti-biotics. They may also enlarge and become quite uncomfortable over time.
Moles are growths on the skin that range in colour from tan, brown and black. These can appear anywhere on the body, although they are more prevalent in sun-exposed areas. Most moles appear in early childhood and during the first 30 years of a person’s life, then as we age, moles usually change slowly, becoming raised and/or changing colour and sometimes become hairy. Some moles may not change at all, while others may slowly disappear over time.
Most moles and cysts are harmless & benign (non-cancerous) Sunlight may cause an increased number of moles or cause pre-cancerous changes due to ultraviolet A and B radiations.
Skin lesions exhibiting any of the following changes should be examined by a Doctor immediately:

  • Rapid changes in colour, size or shape.
  • Itching or Bleeding
  • Change in sensation & discomfort
