Moles

The problem of the appearance of various moles, wards and other various lesions on our skin is often. However, many of these should be removed, either for medical reasons (histological examination) or for cosmetic reasons, or for both of these reasons, which is the most common.

In 2015, researchers at King's College London published a relevant publication in the British Journal of Dermatology. They have shown that people with over 7 moles in the right arm have 9 times the chance of having over 50 moles throughout their bodies. While people with more than 11 moles in their right arm (especially in the area over their right elbow), they probably have more than 100 moles all over their body, which greatly increases the risk of melanoma.

For this reason, the absolute need for monitoring and mapping of these lesions by specialized scientists is once again stressed.

At this point, it is worth noting that the existing belief that moles should not be removed because it can be irritated to cancer due to the excision is totally wrong. Whenever a problem arose, it was because the specimen material was not sent for histopathologic examination and malignancy existed at the time of excision.

The usual method we trust at Hightechmed for mole excision or any skin lesion is Radiofrequencies (RF). It is very accurate, most probably we don’t have to use any stitches and the cosmetic result is perfect. But the more important of all is that this method allows us to remove the whole lesion intact for histopathologic examination.
