Cancerous Moles

A mole can also be removed if the patient considers it cosmetically unsightly. Sometimes, these skin imperfections can have an impact on how one sees him or herself. Lowered self-esteem can lead to other problems. There may be a surgical scar after the mole has been removed depending on the site and size.

Warts are caused by the human papilloma virus (HPV). Warts are tumors but are very rarely cancerous. They are however contagious. There are many over-the-counter (OTC) products on the market claiming to remove warts, but many of them just don’t work. If you have a wart that you would like to have removed, contact our team of dermatologists.
