One stop mole and lesion clinic

Book an appointment today - no referral required

At Spire Hull and East Riding Hospital, we offer a one stop mole and lesion removal clinic where you are able to have a consultation and procedure to remove a mole all in one visit, at a date and time of your choosing. Most moles and lesions don't cause serious problems however you may want to have them removed for practical or cosmetic reasons. This is not a walk-in clinic, but appointments can be made to suit you.

The technique that your Consultant will use to remove your mole or lesion will depend on factors such as its size and where it is on your body. Your Consultant will advise you on which method is most appropriate for you.

Your consultant will apply a dressing to the wound, if necessary, but some wounds heal better if they are left uncovered.

What happens on the day?

On the day of your appointment you will have an initial consultation with the Consultant surgeon. Your Consultant will go over the information you provided and go through the procedure and potential risks.

Following your consultation, you will go with a nurse and Consultant to the treatment room for your procedure. The procedure will usually last no more than 30 minutes.

Please note that due to the nature of the clinic, you may experience a short wait.

After the procedure

After a local anaesthetic, it may take several hours before the feeling comes back to the affected area. Take special care not to bump or knock the area. You will usually be able to go home when you feel ready. It is advisable not to drive after local anaesthesia as it can, though rarely, cause dizziness.

Your Consultant or nurse will give you some advice about caring for your healing wound before you go home. You will be discharged with a leaflet explaining who to contact if you have any concerns.

The price includes one follow up visit with the nurse to remove any stitches if needed. You may also visit your family doctor/nurse to have these removed. Usually, this is after about seven days, if the stitches are on your face, and 10 to 14 days if they are on another part of your body. The length of time any dissolvable stitches will take to disappear depends on what type you have. However, for most skin lesion removal procedures, they should usually disappear in about two to four weeks.

Your consultant may send the lesion to the laboratory for tests. You are normally informed of the results through a letter from your Consultant, a copy of which will also be sent to your GP. On some occasions, a biopsy result may show some abnormalities. If this does happen your Consultant will ask to see you to explain the results and the next course of action.

We look forward to welcoming you to Spire Hull and East Riding Hospital. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please contact us.
