Mole Removal


Most people have brown spots on their skin in one location or another. These may be birthmarks, moles, or sun related spots called lentigos. Many of these are normal, but some may be suspicious for skin cancer. The ABCDE’s of melanoma are important to watch out for:
Asymmetry, Border irregularity, Color variability, Diameter larger than a pencil eraser, and Evolution (or change over time.)

Benign moles may sometimes become bothersome due to irritation or tenderness. Clothing or hair brushing may irritate moles located in the underarms or on the scalp. There are multiple methods for removal depending on location and size. These range from superficial shave removals to excisions using deep and superficial sutures. Scars will range from near invisible to discolored lines or areas. Methods to minimize scarring will be discussed din consultation with Dr. Dolev.
