La Mesa area dermatologists describe mole removal

La Mesa area dermatologists describe mole removal

Moles, also called “nevi,” are extremely common. It is not unusual for patients to have anywhere from 10-40 moles on their body. In most instances, they are nothing to worry about. However, when they begin to change, it may be a sign of possible skin cancer. It is essential that patients pay close attention to their moles and watch for any changes. Those who have moles that are growing, itching, or bleeding may want to learn about mole removal. La Mesa dermatologists, Dr. Dean, Dr. Bushman, Dr. Goskowicz, Dr. Crosby and Dr. Shinko Lin can help.

Skin Examinations

Skin cancer is a serious issue, especially melanoma. The physicians at Grossmont Dermatology recommend patients take a proactive approach to their skin care and visit a dermatologist yearly for an annual skin check. During a skin check, the doctor can evaluate any concerning moles or lesions and discuss removal. Removal may be done for cosmetic or medical purposes. Cosmetic purposes may include if the mole is in a highly visible or embarrassing area. Medical reasons include if there are concerns of skin cancer or if the mole is itching, bleeding, or causing irritation.

Mole Removal

In most cases, mole removals are simple and relatively painless.If there are concerns of cancerous cells, all tissueis sent to the lab for testing.

" All of us have skin! Sadly, it is ignored too often until something goes wrong. I recommend GROSSMONT DERMATOLOGY MEDICAL CLINIC and SKIN CANCER TREATMENT CENTER. The entire staff works together to assure an efficient and professional experience. I have been a patient of Doctors Dean, Bushman and Li; and have friends who are patients of Dr. Goskowicz. (I feel sure Dr. Crosby is excellent, too.)
