Mole Removal in Chennai

What is a mole on the skin?

A pigmented growth on the skin is called a mole. Moles are also termed as Nevus. Moles are smooth, brownish, slightly raised, and can be found anywhere on the body. They tend to change as the years pass and sometimes hair may develop in the moles. Some moles may not change, while others may gradually fade over time. Moles are normally harmless and in rare cases, they turn into melanoma or other skin cancers.


When does a mole need to be removed/treated?

Generally, most of the moles are harmless and don’t require treatment. If a person doesn’t like the way it appears or they feel irritated by the presence of the mole, then one can go for a mole removal option. However, any change in the color, size, or shape of a mole is considered to be removed as it can be a sign of skin cancer.


Who are the medical experts to be consulted for mole removal?

Well experienced and qualified Dermatologists are recommended for mole removal. Usually, most moles are treated by either excisional biopsy or surgical shave techniques. If a mole is suspected to be cancerous, then an excisional biopsy is effective.


What are the common types of Nevus?

Following are few of the common types of nevus:

  • Congenital nevus
  • Dysplastic nevus - atypical mole (non-cancerous)
  • Miescher nevus - brownish or skin-colored mole on face or neck
  • Unna nevus - soft and brownish moles on arms, trunk
  • Meyerson nevus - moles surrounded by a red rash
  • Halo nevus - mole with a white ring of unpigmented skin
  • Spitz nevus - pink-colored raised moles appear
  • Reed nevus - spindle cell mole that may be mistaken for melanoma
  • Agminated nevus - a group of moles located on one area of the body


How does a Dermatologist remove moles?

Dermatologists use different techniques for mole removal and few of them are:

  • Surgical excision
  • Surgical shave
  • Scalpel removal
  • Punch biopsy


If the mole looks abnormal, then Dermatologists perform a biopsy to check for the presence of any cancerous cells. 


Can an individual self examine for any abnormality in the mole?

Yes, one can examine their mole for any abnormalities. If an individual notices the following signs, then he/she should consult a Dermatologist immediately.

  • Asymmetry - either side of the mole looks different from each other
  • Border - if the borders of the mole are irregular, crooked, or uneven
  • Color - check whether the mole is multicolored
  • Diameter - if the width of the mole is more than 6 millimeters
  • Evolution - if the mole has changed in size or shape 


Does mole removal leave scars?

Yes, a scar can be seen in the natural process of healing. But the resulting scar may disappear on its own depending on some factors such as the age of an individual, type of surgery, and location of the mole.


How to prevent or reduce the formation of scars after mole removal?

Following are a few of the ways to avoid scars after mole removal:

  • Avoid exposing to the sun
  • Do not stretch the skin where the scar is located
  • Maintain the incision site to be clean and moist
  • After removal of sutures, massage the scar
  • Apply pressure therapy
  • Cryosurgery
  • Laser therapy
  • Corticosteroid injections
  • Wear polyurethane dressing on the scar
  • Persistent care
