Surgical Removal of Skin Lesions

Probus Surgical Centre provides a high quality private service for the removal of various inconvenient and unsightly skin lesions, including moles, cysts, lipomas, warts and skin tags that are not covered by the NHS.

The service comprises a ‘one-stop’ combined consultation and simple surgical procedure, using local anaesthetic, for the removal of single or multiple lesions.

The vast majority of procedures that we perform do not require stitches.

What are skin lesions?

Benign skin lesions are extremely common.    Generally, they are characterised as a lump of varying sizes either on the surface or below the surface of the skin. They are harmless and do not necessarily need to be removed. However, some people might want to remove them for aesthetic reasons or if they are in an uncomfortable place on the body.

Types of Lesion

The following types of skin lesion/lumps and bumps can be treated:

  • Moles
  • Cysts
  • Skin Tags
  • Lipomas
  • Keratosis
  • Warts

The Cost

  • Free Initial Consultation
  • Lesion Removal – From £450

Histology

Tissue samples we remove may be required to be sent for analysis for either confirmation of diagnosis or to ensure the lesion has been completely removed.  There will be an additional cost from £100 if histopathological analysis is required.
