Is surgery required to remove lesions?

Depending on the type, size and location of the lesion you may need to have it surgically removed in clinic or theatre. You will need a consultation with a Consultant to discuss which type of excision is best for you. Alternately, if the lesion is positioned on the surface of the skin, you may benefit from laser removal.

When is Photodynamic Therapy suitable to remove lesions?

Photodynamic Therapy is used for Basal Cell Carcinoma’s and other types of pre-cancerous skin lesions we offer, and we are one of two Hospitals in the United Kingdom to offer both Laser and Photodynamic Therapy as a cosmetic alternative to surgical excision for Basal Cell Carcinomas, Bowens Disease and Actinic Keratoses.

The guide price provided on this page is for the lesion to be removed in theatre, which is different to having the mole removed in clinic.

Before considering surgery, it is important to be aware that all surgical procedures carry a certain amount of risk and it is important that you understand the risks involved with Surgical Excision of Lesion.
