Some moles are harmless, and some moles should be examined and removed if malignancy is deduced, as they can be life-threatening. Corrective action should be taken and shown to your doctor are those which change in any way � in shape, size or colour, or any mole that itches, hurts or bleeds. Any alteration in a mole or any new mole which appears to be growing may be a sign of malignancy. However, many moles, are not exactly of any medical concern, rather are a cosmetic concern. Usually these moles are raised, causing a contour deformity as well as possibly being pigmented.
Basically, warts are rough patches of skin that are mostly caused by viral infection. Cryosurgery can be used to treat warts most of the times, which involves freezing the wart with liquid nitrogen causing little pain, following which the surrounding dead skin and wart falls off by itself. It is possible to treat the warts using the same techniques employed for the removal of moles.
At Radiance Clinic, moles and warts are removed under topical anesthesia using gel or local anesthesia in rare cases. In the procedure, Dr Nitin uses a Radio Frequency (RF) machine.
What can I expect later?
There is no need for stitches, since the skin is not cut through full thickness. The skin is given the chance to heal with very little to no scarring. The wound is like a shallow graze. In the beginning, it is covered with a small Band-aid type dressing. In around one week the skin heals. For a few weeks before settling down it will be slightly pink. Some moles and warts will heal with virtually no scar at all others may have a slight area of decreased pigmentation. In some people, it is observed there is slight recurrence rate of the mole. These patients usually opt for the same treatment rather than having an excision with a scar.
Any wart or mole disappears as if there was anything at safe and expert hands of Dr Nitin who is Dermato- Surgeon.
