Mole Removal - what are the reasons?

Posted on

Moles are very common and the vast majority are harmless and do not have any impact on everyday life or self-image. However, there may be reasons why you may be considering mole removal.

This mole was removed under local anaesthetic straight after consultation. The scar was aligned in her frown lines to conceal it.

What are the reasons for mole removal?

  • The mole is in a prominent area, for example on your face, and you feel self-conscious or people comment on it. 
  • The mole may be growing rapidly and getting more noticeable.
  • It may be causing problems with daily life e.g. catching on clothes or jewellery. If it is in the scalp or the beard area, it may be caught when brushing hair or shaving, and either hurting or bleeding.
  • You may be concerned that the mole is cancerous or may become cancerous in the future. 

What are the features of a benign, non-cancerous mole?

examples of benign moles
  • Present for many months or years 
  • Growing slowly or there is no change in size
  • Do not usually bleed or become open and raw (i.e. develop an ulcer)
  • Round or oval in shape and have a definite edge
  • Are symmetrical so both sides match in shape and border
  • Usually have a smooth surface
  • Tend to be small (typically less than 5mm) but not always so
  • Can have hairs growing through them

What are the concerning features of a mole?

Some moles may be a type of skin cancer such as melanoma or other types of skin cancer. Things to look out for in skin cancer include: 

examples of moles with concerning features
  • Mole grows and changes rapidly over weeks or a few months.
  • Change in colour or includes multiple colours
  • Has uneven, irregular edges and asymmetrical in shape
  • Itches or develops a raw surface (ulcer) and oozes or bleeds
  • Can become large and be bigger than 5mm

How are suspicious cancerous moles treated?

  • If you are concerned about having skin cancer, you must arrange an urgent appointment with your GP or a private specialised doctor.
  • They should arrange surgery for removal of the mole and analysis of the area. This allows us to confirm what the mole is and to ensure that the mole has been completely removed. 
  • Further tests and treatment can be planned depending on the results on the analysed area. 

Will the NHS remove benign, non-cancerous moles?

Due to the demand on the NHS, benign moles are no longer treated on the NHS. You may be sent to see a specialist to confirm the diagnosis but it is unlikely that the mole is removed.

If you have a mole that you are self-conscious of or impacts on your daily activities, then get in touch to know more about our skin surgery service. Miss Tadiparthi can diagnose and remove moles on the same day in most cases under local anaesthetic. She will recommend the surgical treatment options that will provide you the best results. You will normally be able to return to work the next day.

Dr Sujatha Tadiparthi is a lovely person and a kind and skilled Dr. If ever I had any similar problems I would definitely go to Dr Tadiparthi, she didn't make me feel embarrassed about using her medical skills to deal with what in the scheme of things was a small problem. But it mattered to me and she did understand that. I came away feeling that everything was sorted kindly, swiftly, practically and safely. Thank you Dr Tadiparthi and team. It was great to meet you.

I put a lot of time into researching a suitable surgeon. I saw reviews about Ms Tadiparthi and got in touch. Ms Tadiparthi is really down to earth, she's easy to talk to, she made me feel at ease and answered all my worries and concerns. She carried out the procedure and did amazing work. I am absolutely delighted with my breasts, I've a new found confidence….the scars are so neat ….. I couldn't recommend Ms Tadiparthi enough for a breast reduction, it took me years to pluck up the courage to do it and I knew from the first time I met her that I wanted her to carry out the procedure.
