What is a benign Lesion?
The term benign lesion denotes a range of non-cancerous lumps, bumps and flat pigmented lesions. This includes moles, cysts, keratoses, warts and callouses. Some of these might be irritating you, others may be causing cosmetic impairment or a perceived disfigurement. Removing these lesions involves a small minor operation performed under local anaesthetic (a numbing agent) whilst you remain awake.
What will my treatment involve?
The type of procedure your doctor uses will depend on the anatomical location of the lesion, its size, depth in the skin and whether histology is required. The procedure might involve s complete surgical removal (and histology analysis), a curettage (the lesion is gently pared away), or shave excision. On initial assessment, your skin will be assessed under an illuminated magnifier (dermatoscope). Any diagnostic uncertainty will warrant a biopsy (taking a small sample) before the procedure to ensure an accurate diagnosis and safe removal.
What is a pre-operative assessment?
This is an opportunity for us to assess your skin and suitability for treatment. We’ll explain the treatment in full and ensure you are prepared. Some complex skin lesions, or those in more difficult areas may need to be referred to secondary care or a plastic surgeon. If we suspect skin cancer or there are concerns about the nature of your skin lesion we may refer you back to the NHS skin cancer pathway or address options for referral to dermatology.
