Surgical Excision

Surgical excision is the removal of unwanted tissue using a scalpel or other cutting instrument.

Lipoma - Surgical ExcisionA lesion may be removed for several reasons, such as :

  • It requires diagnosis
  • It is cosmetically unattractive
  • It is tender or prone to being knocked
  • It is inflamed
  • It is infected

We may occasionally decide that a lump, bump or mole looks as though it needs further investigation and here we would suggest that it be sent to the laboratory for analysis (histology). In these circumstances, the lump is surgically excised and immediately sent away for review. The results are normally returned to us within 5 working days.

Sebaceous Cyst - Post surgical excision

Surgical Excision is effective for all lesions, such as:

  • Lump and bumps removal
  • Mole removal
  • Cyst removal
  • Lipoma removal
