Im having a mole excision done tomorrow on my thigh. Is it ok to go excercise afterwards?

Im having a mole excision done tomorrow on my thigh. Is it ok to go excercise afterwards?

Depends : If the mole is small and only being shaved off, then light lower body exercise should be OK. If a deeper excision requiring stitches, then you likely will need a period of lower body rest. Ask your doctor at the time of the procedure. Upper body exercise should be fine either way. ...Read more

How can I get mole removal done through excision without anesthesia?

How can I get mole removal done through excision without anesthesia?

Sure: However, depends on size, extent of excision, location, & your ability to remain still. If you are referring to general anesthesia, then yes for sure this probably will not be required. Local anesthesia is usually used, & is also helpful with keeping you comfortable throughout. Even the best intentioned patients can not help to have a natural reaction to withdraw from pain. Emla (lidocaine and prilocaine) patch at least. ...Read more

Call the DR: Call the DR who did the procedure, explain what happened. The DR will want to see you at once. Do not delay. You will probably get an answering service if weekend: make it clear that the DR will wish to see you ASAP. ...Read more

Nevi: I think it is very important you recheck with the dermatologist about the biopsy report and you too must report your new nevi to the dematologist who performed the biopsy as soon as possible. ...Read more

I had a mole removed on scalp and there is now a black scab over the top of the excision site. Been 7 days since stitches removed. Any need for worry?

I had a mole removed on scalp and there is now a black scab over the top of the excision site. Been 7 days since stitches removed. Any need for worry?

No: On the scalp it is common to have adherent scabs because of hairs trapped in the scab. It will be black from old blood. If you cannot tease it off or wash it off, your Dr can easily remove it. This may involve gently cutting hairs under the scab. ...Read more

I had a mole excision 6 weeks ago which caused red, raw skin around the incision. There is no infection and the incision, itself, is healed but the skin is around is still pretty red. Will it fade?

I had a mole excision 6 weeks ago which caused red, raw skin around the incision.  There is no infection and the incision, itself,  is healed but the skin is around is still pretty red.  Will it fade?

Yes: As two of us have answered, it will fade with time. Let it be. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more

Malignant potential: Depending on what the pathology report showed your doctor wants to remove all of the mole not just the surface . It is possible that is looked like it could be a skin cancer that is something you MUST discuss with your doctor and have the rest of the mole removed. ...Read more

If a dr thought a mole was melanoma, do they usually do an excision biopsy as opposed to a shave?

Excisional biopsy: An excisional biopsy is often used when a wider or deeper portion of the skin is needed. Using a scalpel, or punch biopsy tool, a full thickness of skin is removed for further examination, and the wound is sutured. Superficial shave biopsies are generally discouraged for the removal of suspicious pigmented lesions since they may not allow for optimal pathologic interpretation of the skin sample ...Read more

My 9 yr.-old had a mole excision by a plastic surgeon in 2012. It has grown back. Was the procedure performed incorrectly? Do we have any recourse?

Happens often: Mole removal under the age of 16 years, often results in a regrowth of the mole. Usually the regrowth is smaller or flatter than the original nevus. I do not recommend cosmetic removal of moles until 16 years or older to minimize the chance of recurrence. ...Read more
