What should I be prepared for during a private dermatologist consultation for mole removal? Does it involve a skin check-up or a mole biopsy?
Moles are very common and most of them are benign. Due to the fact that they come in different shapes or sizes, you should first make sure that you are a good candidate for the procedure. The reason why you should see a specialist is when you notice dramatic changes in your mole's shape, size, color and becomes irregular. According to the ABCDE rules regarding mole diagnosis, these changes MAY suggest malignant characteristics, but even if it's not the case, you should anyway have it checked by a mole specialist or a private dermatologist at Renew Skin & Health Clinic branch in Birmingham.
During the consultation, the private dermatologist should evaluate the previously mentioned features of the mole, assess your skin type, medical history and current health condition and lifestyle and also discuss the options for mole removal or if the mole should be sent for biopsy for malignant characteristics evaluation.
