Will Perform Mole Cyst Lesion Skin Removal
I have non-cancerous moles on face, and I want to remove.
Which procedure won't leave scars:
cryogenic mole removal or radio-frequency mole removal?
Plastic Surgeon: They all can produce a scar. You want to remove the mole in its entirety to make sure the entire lesion is benign. Get a plastic surgeon to do it if you want to minimize potential scaring. Best wishes. ...Read more
A cyst is a structure or mass that consists of a cellular lined sac. It is typically filled with fluid but may be filled with solid material. It can be congenital, traumatic, or acquired. They may develop nearly anywhere in the body and usually require complete excision for eradication or they are likely to recur. Fluid filled sacs that are not cellular lined ...Read more
Get it checked: Anytime there is a change in the character of a mole in terms of size, color or pain it should be evaluated by a dermatologist or family doctor. Red color indicates blood from increased growth or trauma. There are some growths that are primarily vascular and can be treated with laser instead of excision. ...Read more
Surgically: When a mole is clinically suspicious of being worrisome for melanoma it is biopsied. The biopsy will usually provide a precise diagnosis and will help guide the treatment which can be surgical excision of the mole with an extra 5 mm of skin all around to a couple of centimeters of skin including possible sentinel lymph node biopsy if the cancer is more evolved. Early detection & removal cures! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes: So in general sebaceous cysts will not every completely go away unless they are removed. This requires a minor surgery. How minor depends on the size of the cyst. These can be often be done in the office under local anesthesia if done early when they are small, however, if large enough may require more than just local anesthesia. Best is to consult with a surgeon - general or plastic surgeon. ...Read more
How can I tell if I had a shave or excisional biopsy to remove a suspicious mole? Dr used local &?scalpel, around margins of mole. Some pigment return
Without scars? No: Any time skin lumps, bumps, or lesions are removed (whether it be surgically, chemically or with a laser), it will leave a scar. If done expertly, and carefully, the scars will be well-hidden, and imperceptible to friends or casual observers. You will likely always know they are there, simply because you know what was done. Before you remove anything, always rule out skin cancer first. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Incision/hypercation: Sebaceous cysts are nasty. They need to be cut out and the 'coating' around them needs to be carefully removed or it will return. Skin tags are easy. They can be scrapped off, cyrofreezed off with liquid nitrogen or burned off with an electrical current. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
The real questions: Forgive my frankness. The only things on your mind right now should be, 'do I have cancer? If it is not diagnosed and it kills me, how will the people who love me be affected?' you're an adult. I can't promise you that you won't notice where you've had the surgery. I doubt anyone else will be aware of anything. A man who'd care (and i've never met such a man) isn't worth keeping. Now be brave. ...Read more
Probably: When biopsies are performed, there is usually scarring unless the biopsy can be done in the form of a superficial shave, which is not always practical for a lip biopsy. However, a biopsy of the lip can be done in such as a way that the scar is significantly camoflauged and once healed (6-12 months) will be difficult to discern from a natural contour of the skin. ...Read more
Several millimeters: To completely remove a mole, one must cut into the skin as the mole may extend several millimeters below the surgace. This will require a stich. However, sometimes we only wish to remove the protion of the mole that sticks out and bothers the patient: in this case we can"shave" the lesion flat parallel to the surface of the skin. ...Read more
Most likely local.: It depends on the size of the cyst. We have taken care of head and neck masses that were quite large and had to be taken out in the or. They turned out to be sebaceous cysts. Most often they are spall enough to be taken out after giving local anesthesia. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Had spitz nevi removed due togrowing rapidly. Biopsy required deeper excision. Now long mole has grown on top of scar n several smaller moles around.
Depends on surgery: Your skin will always heal with a scar of cut deep enough to remove most moles, but the scars can look good and usually better than many moles if performed by an experienced dermatologist or plastic surgeon. I like to shave raised benign moles flat, they usually heal beautifully with minimal scarring. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Could having a mole removed cosmetically by laser cause that mole to show dysplasia if it came back later on as often moles removed via laser return?
Not usually: A mole is a collection of skin pigment cells that are usually dark but not always. The base of the mole extends the full depth of the skin so to completely remove it a minor surgery is usually necessary. In most cases the final scar is less visible than the mole itself. Simply shaving the mole off flush with the skin is not effective. Non-surgical treatments may fade a mole but not remove them. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
