What are the conditions and implications of mole removal and in what situations is a mole removal procedure recommended or allowed?
Moles should be removed when causing inconveniences at shaving, combing or dressing and when they create an unaesthetic appearance (if they appear on the face or other visible places). In this respect, the most popular removal procedure at Renew Skin & Health Clinic is radiosurgery. It is a non-invasive, quick, painless and efficient method that uses radio waves for the removal of problematic moles.
Moles also require removal if after a consultation it was established that the analyzed skin lesions represent a health hazard having a malignant potential. In this situation, a biopsy will be performed by removing the entire mole and a small part of the adjacent skin tissues. The tissue sample is further sent to a pathologic lab where it will be determined if the mole has a benign or malignant character, in the latter case the adjacent tissues being also analyzed in order to determine if the melanoma has spread to other healthy tissues.
If your moles do not bother you in any way, do not cause any inconveniences and, most importantly, do not show any changes in their shape, size, color and texture, they will not require removal.
