Excision of Skin Lumps2021-10-21T10:45:46+01:00

A vast majority of lumps or bumps that appear on the skin are harmless, such as skin tags, cysts, benign moles or lipomas. These usually are of little concern, other than aesthetic, but may cause problems when irritated or caught on clothes. Lumps on the skin may make those with them feel embarrassed and self conscious in regards to their appearance, however, at Dermasurge, we offer a variety of treatments for removing lumps from the skin.

What does the treatment do?

Amongst the treatments, we offer here at Dermasurge are procedures for the excision of skin lumps. This is a minor surgery that can be performed under local anaesthetic. During excision, the skin lump and some of the surrounding skin is cut away, leaving only healthy tissue behind.

All treatments at Dermasurge are prefaced with a consultation with Dr Hiba Injibar, our founder and consultant dermatologist. During your consultation, Dr Injibar will be able to examine your skin lumps, assessing their condition and determining the best possible treatment plan based on your unique needs.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is there any downtime after a skin lump excision?2020-01-27T22:54:05+00:00

Patients will be able to go home shortly after the procedure, and return to work the following day, but should take care in the days following in order to ensure healthy healing and minimise the risk of infection. Over-the-counter pain relief may be used if necessary. After examining your skin, Dr Injibar will be able to better advise on how much downtime is to be expected.

Are there any side effects?2020-01-27T22:55:03+00:00

As a surgical procedure, excision of skin lumps may result in pain in the treatment area, as well as bleeding, or scarring.

Will my skin lump come back?2020-01-27T22:55:48+00:00

Whether the skin lump returns or not will depend on the type of skin lump that occurs. For example, a lipoma or epidermoid cyst may return over time.

What is the aftercare procedure?2020-01-27T22:56:38+00:00

Patients will need to return to Dermasurge within two weeks in order to have stitches removed, during which time Dr Injibar will be able to assess the condition of the healing wound and effectiveness of treatment. Leading up to their follow-up appointments, patients should take care to keep the treated area clean, dry, and free of strain or damage. It can take up to three weeks for the skin to heal, and painkillers such as paracetamol or ibuprofen may be used to manage any discomfort.
