Being referred for mole removal from jaw. It is 7mm in size. What should I expect ie procedure and aftercare regard to work (fitness trainer)/sport?

see answer: Assuming you have a small skin lesion, the procedure would most likely involve a local numbing procedure and excisional removal/biopsy of the site. Cauterization may be used to treat post procedure, or a suture closure depending on the area and surgeon.

I am on Abilify, (aripiprazole) I'd like to lose weight though. Is it best to exercise (on my cross-trainer - that is falling apart - but that's another story) in the morning or at night?

I am on Abilify, (aripiprazole) I'd like to lose weight though.

Exercise studies have suggested a slight advantage to exercising on an empty stomach -- typically early morning. But it is only slight. Better to favor the time that permits you to stick to it. ...Read more
