During your initial consultation the doctor will examine your skin lesion and advise on the best way to manage it. The procedure will be explained in detail including potential risks and complications.
The technique used will depend on factors such as the nature of lesion, its size and location, a local anaesthetic may need to be administered to minimise any discomfort.
Cryotherapy (Cryopen) can be performed at the time of the consultation.
Procedures requiring a local anaesthetic will need a separate booking or can be performed on the same day if previously arranged. Lesions that are excised are routinely sent for histology (laboratory analysis).
Multiple lesions may require subsequent surgical appointments.
