Mole assessment and removal

Moles are extremely common skin growths which can appear anywhere on the body. They are usually asymmetrical, range from tan to dark brown in colour and are usually smaller than 6mm.

Most are harmless but any changes to their colour, size or shape could indicate an increased risk of skin cancer. So checking moles frequently is particularly important.

Our Consultant Dermatologist, Dr Christos Kasparis, provides a one stop mole assessment (full visual examination and a magnified analysis called dermoscopy) and mole removal service.

Mole removal can be performed during the same assessment and if suspicious in nature are sent to the laboratory for histopathology analysis by a pathologist.

Mole or lesion assessment (up to three moles) £150
Mole or lesion removal (per mole) £150.
Pathology analysis – 1 mole - £115, 2-5 moles - £225.  6-10 moles - £295

Skin tag and wart removal

Warts, verrucas, skin tags can be unsightly and our consultant dermatologist, Dr Christos Kasparis, offers two types of treatment for their removal: cryotherapy and surgical excision.

If the wart or skin tag is of a suspicious nature, our consultant dermatologist may want to send the sample for pathology for further investigation.

Cryotherapy
Cryotherapy is an affordable, safe, quick and reliable way to treat warts, skin tags, and other skin lesions. The skin flaw is simply frozen using liquid nitrogen to kill the skin cells and root. The procedure may require repeat visits depending on the size, location and how the wart responds to treatment.

Cryotherapy can be used for: viral warts, verrucas, skin tags, sun spots, solar keratoses (sun damage), seborrheic keratoses and other skin lesions.

Excision
Excision of a wart or skin tag involves minor surgery under local anaesthetic. Excision is performed by our consultant dermatologist and there are no repeat visits needed unless specified by the consultant during the initial consultation. If stitches are used, these may need to be removed 7-10 days after the procedure. Although very effective, in some cases warts can re-appear on the same spot even if they have been fully removed.
