Removal of benign growths (moles and cysts)
Moles or cysts may become uncomfortable or worrisome. Proper evaluation by a dermatologist is needed before considering treatment options.
Common growths such as moles and cysts are almost always benign, and can develop anywhere on the body. These benign growths are important to be aware of as they can result in irritation, discomfort, cause unnecessary anxiety, or turn cancerous. These growths can be removed in a variety of ways. Depending on the location, size and depth of the lesion, the best method can be chosen to minimize scarring and maximize the likelihood that the mole will never return.
