A mole that is considered “benign” is one that may be cosmetically removed. We can remove benign (non-cancerous) moles or skin growths anywhere on the body that you don’t find aesthetically pleasing. Depending on the type of lesion, we can cauterize them or gently excise them using a surgical blade. The spot is then covered with a bandaid for 5-7 days to promote proper healing. This treatment is minor and doesn’t usually involve any ‘downtime’.
