At one time, moles were considered beauty marks. But for many people, not only do moles cause aesthetic concerns, they may also develop into cancer. Warning signs include:
- Change in size, shape or color
- Multiple colors
- Itching or bleeding
Moles that become cancerous, called melanomas, need to be removed immediately to avoid spreading.
How are moles removed?
Whether a mole is removed for cosmetic reasons, because it rubs on clothes or is otherwise bothersome, or if it is suspected or confirmed to be cancerous, most can be safely and quickly removed through surgical excision. Using a local anesthetic, we will ensure the mole is completely removed so it cannot grow or spread. Because an incision will be made, there will be a scar, but we are especially careful to make the scar as inconspicuous as possible.

A wart is a small, hard, benign growth on the skin, usually caused when a virus enters the body through broken skin and causes that area to become infected, which can develop into a wart. These annoying, embarrassing warts can be removed by an exciting new procedure called electrocautery, which can:
- Destroy unwanted growths
- Eliminate the wart or damaged skin tissue
- Even out the problematic area of skin
- Ensure a safe, quick result
