Dermosurgery


The department surgically removes all types of benign and cancerous skin growths.

The most common benign skin growth surgically removed is moles, which is performed in the following cases:

Dysphasic or a-typical moles: irregular borders, a-symmetric form, uneven pigmentation, are growing and or bleeding. Thirty percent of these cases are malignant melanomas, the most dangerous form of cancer in human pathology, which must be removed.

Cosmetic reasons: when a patient feels uncomfortable about the presence of large mole on the face or body which in most cases is benign

When a mole is located in an area of the body in which the mole is frequently disturbed or put under mechanical stress, for example a mole on the face which is disturbed during shaving etc.

In the case of any elevated risk or indication of a mole turning malignant, it must be removed and must be histology tested. The earlier a doubtful mole is removed and tested, the better the chances are to fully treat and resolve any skin cancer issues.

We administer local anesthetic when surgically removing moles, which prevents pain and ensures the patient’s comfort. Typically, the mole and surrounding skin are removed leaving the healthy tissue which is surgically stitched, and the stitches can be removed within 7-10 days.
