Moles & Basaliomas
Mole (Nevus) is a hypernym for all pigmented or non pigmented benign skin lesions. Mole removal may be desired for cosmetic reasons or it may be necessary for medical reasons. In most cases, a histological investigation is recommended.
Basaliomas are semibenign lesions. They grow slowly but continously destroying the surrounding tissue but do not cause metastasis. Therefore it is recommended to remove Basaliomas as soon as possible for histological investigations.
The removement of moles or basaliomas are performed under local anaesthesia in an outpatient procedure. The decision if a skin lesion has to be removed for medical reasons should be discussed with a dermatologist in advance.
