Mole Removal and Mole Checks

A typical step by step process of mole removal at The Yorkshire Skin Hospital:

  • Following your FREE Initial consultation with Dr Colin Wright, he will decide if surgical removal is the best option.
  • If Dr Wright believes surgical removal is the best option, then our friendly reception team will arrange your skin surgery appointment.
  • Dr Wright will conduct surgical removal of the mole(s) under local anaesthetic.
  • You will be left with a smart and clean scar and a follow up appointment will be arranged to remove any sutures.

The ABCDE rule when checking moles:

A – Asymmetry – When half of a mole does not match the shape of the other half.
B – Borders – Are the edges irregular, jagged or blurred?
C – Colour – Look out for a mole which is not evenly coloured, check to see if there are patches of black, pink or tanned colours.
D – Diameter – Is the mole bigger than 6mm? (wider than a pencil eraser).
E – Evolving – Check to see whether the mole has changed in size, colour, diameter, or has become raised from the skin.
