Mole and papilloma removal

 

Moles and Papillomas

Moles are light to dark colored spots or raised areas of the skin. They are caused by a local accumulation of pigment cells in the skin and may occur anywhere on the body, and are different in shape, size and color. Papillomas [Human papilloma virus (HPV)] causes common warts, the small, white, beige or brown skin growths that can appear almost anywhere on the body and on the moist mucous membranes.

 

Remove them or not?

Removal of moles may be necessary when malignancy is suspected, then it is a medical procedure. Usually removal is not necessary, then it is a cosmetic procedure.

 

Methods to remove a Mole:

•             Shaving/ coagulation

•             Excision

The dermatologist looks at each case and decides which of these methods is the most suitable.

 

Shaving/coagulation

Shaving is applied to raised moles and is done under local anesthesia. During the treatment, the upper layer of the skin is shaved off by a very sharp knife. After this the wound is cauterized by heating (coagulation) and this creates a crust on the skin. This crust comes loose naturally over time.

 

Excision

Excision is used in flat moles and is also done under local anesthesia. During an excision, the entire mole and a bit of the surrounding skin are removed. The wound will heal within a few weeks.
