How We Can Help
Moles Treatment Information
If we diagnose your mole as cancerous, we arrange to treat it as soon as possible. Melanoma can progress rapidly, so it is important to move quickly.
Most of the time, we simply examine your moles and ask you to come back at regular intervals. This allows us to monitor your moles for any possible cancerous development. Some people have a large number of moles (50 or more), which makes it difficult to monitor these growths accurately. In these cases we may complete a body mapping procedure, where we take a picture of your entire body and make accurate observations of your moles over time.
If you want a common mole removed for cosmetic reasons or because it is prone to damage from ordinary activities, our specialists can do that for you. These are usually removed by cutting them out or shaving them off in a minor procedure done in the office.
