This is the third part of our introductory series on mole removal. We have already looked whether you should decide to go ahead with mole removal and your options for either surgical or laser mole removal.
So, do the NHS provide mole removal?
If you suspect a mole is cancerous, your first port of call is your GP, who will either be able to tell you there and then whether a mole is benign (harmless), which is the most likely scenario, or they will refer you on to a Dermatologist for further evaluation.
If you have a mole, which is benign, but that you would like to be removed for cosmetic reasons, there are two options available to you at the Skin Surgery Clinic. They can be quickly and effectively removed by using one of our Class Four medical grade lasers or they can be removed by Surgical Excision. Both methods are completely safe and the use of a local anaesthetic greatly reduces any discomfort that you might feel.
What can I expect if I go private?
You should expect your clinic to provide at least the same standard of expertise in treatment and care that you would receive on the NHS. At the Skin Surgery Clinic, our experienced team of medical Doctors and Nurses will be able to guide you through the treatment process, explaining all the details in full and answering any questions that you might have.
