Mole, cyst, wart, and skin tag removal At Tracey Bell
If you have a skin lesion such as a mole, cyst, wart or skin tag and would like it removed, it is usually a very simple procedure. You may want to take this step now because you have noticed changes in shape or colour, or it may be unsightly, painful or restricting your movement. You might have just become fed up with it, and decided it’s time to deal with it.
A skin tag is a small flesh-coloured flap of tissue that hangs off the skin by a connecting stalk. Skin tags are not dangerous. They are usually found on the neck, chest, back, armpits, under the breasts, or in the groin area. They can be as small as a couple of millimeters or may grow as big as 5cm. Skin tags are more common in people who are overweight or obese.
Skin tags usually don’t cause any pain. However, for appearance reasons, a person may want to get them removed. Skin tags can also be inconvenient, becoming irritated if clothes or jewellery rubs on them.
About mole, cyst, wart, and skin tag removal
Most lesions are removed using a scalpel under local anaesthetic, which means you will be awake, but the area will be completely numb. Other techniques include applying chemical treatments or freezing the skin. Sometimes a laser is used to destroy the lesion while skin tags may be simply snipped off with surgical scissors.
Removing a skin lesion is usually a quick and straightforward procedure and is most often performed as an out-patient procedure.
