These are extremely common especially around the neck and armpits. They may be numerous and unsightly and can rub and cause soreness. Most can be quickly and safely removed by electrocautery although larger lesions may need formal excision.
There are many skin conditions that result in unsightly blemishes. Whilst most of these are benign (not cancerous) they may be cause for individual concern or cosmetically undesirable. The treatment for most small benign skin lesions is no longer available on the NHS. Dr Jonny Christopher and others provide these service at our clinic. He is a General Practitioner with a special interest in Minor Surgery and skills in a wide range of cosmetic procdedures.
How our procedures are performed
You will have an initial consultation with the doctor to discuss your problem and the best way to manage it. The procedures are explained and we ask you to sign a consent form. The consultation charge will be subtracted from the costs of any surgical treatment. All procedures are carried out under a local anaesthetic and can be performed on the same day if previously arranged. Lesions that are excised are routinely sent for histology (laboratory analysis) if the diagnosis is uncertain. You can drive following surgery and, in most cases, resume your normal activities straight away. You will be offered a free follow-up appointment for suture removal, wound review, etc. Multiple lesions may require subsequent surgical appointments.
£50 per additional
*Histology is charged at £120 per specimen. Please note that this will be added on to your total bill if the doctor considers it is required.
