Why you Should Consider Mole Removal in Essex

If the mole on your back, arm or other parts of your body is causing you any sort of anxiety, then you’re right to want to get it checked out. In fact, mole removal in Essex is one of the most effective ways to make sure that you’re looking after yourself as a mole could well have turned cancerous without you knowing, which could lead to serious complications.

But don’t worry if you’re concerned about trying to get a meeting with the dermatologist on the NHS because our team at FACEmed specialises in mole removal in Essex at a time that suits you. There’s no need to wait for referrals or waiting lists with our specialist team, if we see something that is concerning we will have it removed as quickly as possible.

Understanding Mole Removal

Mole removal is designed to completely remove moles from the skin. Our skills and techniques ensure that there is only minimal scarring, creating a smooth and discrete finish, so you won’t even know that it’s there. The mole itself is a small growth that is usually brown or black in colour, which is caused by skin pigment cells.

While there is nothing wrong with having a mole, there is a risk that these skin cells can turn cancerous, hence the need to have them removed. These completely safe procedures are virtually painless thanks to the local anaesthetic and there is no need for recovery time. It is also a permanent solution, so you don’t need to worry about the mole coming back in the future.

How to Tell if you Need a Mole Removed

Moles are often removed for cosmetic reasons, but there are a few other reasons why you might need a mole removed. If you have a mole that is growing or changing, if it is itchy or bleeding, or if it is located in an area where it could be at risk for skin cancer, you should have it removed.

It’s Asymmetrical

Several signs will tell you that you should investigate mole removal in Essex, one of which is that the mole is looking pretty asymmetrical. If one section of your mobile has a different shape, colour or appearance, then it may be a cause for concern. We would suggest you don’t panic and you come and visit our specialists who will be able to determine whether or not the mole has turned cancerous and if you should be scheduled for mole removal in Essex.

The Border has Changed

For the most part, moles have a clear and regular shaped border, a differentiation between the mole and the rest of your skin. But if your mole doesn’t have such a defined border, or if the border is irregular, then you should have a doctor examine it. It is an early sign that the mole might be mutating or growing. Once you’ve brought it to the attention of a professional, you’ll be able to arrange for mole removal in Essex.
