Minor Surgery-Lumps & Bumps (Warts / Cysts / Mole/ Scar Removal)
After a full assessment of the area we will recommend the most appropriate way the remove the abnormality. Normally the treatment is quick and the results are effective.
Many people have lumps or bumps on the surface of their skin within or under the skin layers.
People should never ignore skin bumps in the hope that they may go away on their own. When it comes to your skin, it is always a good idea to have them checked by a professional.
Our professional team at EA Clinic will be able to assess your condition and decide what (if any) treatment should be applied.
The procedure involves using a scalpel to remove the mole. This small superficial wound which is then sutured and a dressing applied. You will be given advice on how to care for the area post treatment. You will be scheduled to come back for stitches removal and a wound check free of charge.
Skin warts are common in young adults and people with certain jobs, e.g. handling meat and fish. Those with chronic skin conditions, e.g. eczema, and those with a weakened immune system.
Usually 30 minutes.
They result from a virus (human papillomavirus) and may be spread by skin to skin contact with a person who has a wart. Often they are spread by picking existing warts and touching other areas.
There is a chance of recurrence but excising the wart minimises this possibility. Other risks are those pertaining to any minor operative procedure which the doctor will discuss with you at your consultation.
The location of the wart/s will be part of the decision making of which treatments are potential options. Treatment is not always essential because approximately 66% of skin warts may resolve on their own within two years. On the other hand, during this period, the wart may grow bigger or new ones may appear. In general, a few small warts are usually easier to treat than several larger warts. For these reasons, the majority of people will choose to choose to treat skin warts.
Shaving and cauterising. Injection of a local anesthesia to numb the skin is performed and then the wart is shaved off using a blade or scalpel. The wound bed is then cauterized with diathermy to stop any bleeding.
Surgical Excision. Injection of a local anesthesia to numb the skin is performed and then the skin around the wart including the wart is removed with a scalpel. The wound bed is then cauterised with diathermy to stop any bleeding and the wound is sutured to make a small scar
Shave and cautery leaves a scar the size of the wound bed. Excision and suture closure makes a small thin line of a scar.
