Skin Lesion Removals
Skin lesions are lumps or bumps such as moles, cysts, warts or skin tags. They can be removed from the skin using chemical and surgical procedures.
Different methods of removal are used depending on what type of skin lesion you have. Some, such as benign (non-cancerous) warts, can be treated with non-surgical procedures. Larger skin lesions or ones that needs a precise removal may need to be surgically removed.
Your doctor may advise you to have surgery if you have a skin lesion that shows any sign of turning cancerous (for example, a mole that has changed shape or color). The removed tissue will be sent to a laboratory to examine the type of cells and determine whether the lesion is benign or cancerous.
