How Testing Affects The Price

In certain cases moles will need to be sent off for histology testing, if this is required the cost for the testing starts from £120 and rises due to the number of moles that require testing. 

This testing is not always required, and in most cases is not needed. The following reasons may cause a need for testing:

Suspicious Appearance: If a mole looks irregular, has uneven borders, varies in colour, or changes in size over time, it may raise concerns about skin cancer, particularly melanoma.

Biopsy Confirmation: A biopsy is often the definitive way to diagnose skin cancer. A small sample of the mole tissue is removed and examined under a microscope by a pathologist to determine if cancerous cells are present.

Dysplastic Nevi: Some moles are classified as dysplastic nevi, which are usually benign but have atypical features that resemble melanoma. Histology can help distinguish between dysplastic nevi and melanoma.

Risk Assessment: Histology can help assess the risk of developing skin cancer. Depending on the findings, the doctor may recommend further monitoring, additional testing, or preventive measures.

Types of Mole Removal Procedures

The most common methods of mole removal are shave excision, surgical removal and laser removal. These methods are effective for reducing scarring and being quick and pain free for the patient. All of them are performed under local anaesthetic and typically take between 15-30 minutes. 

Surgical excision: This method involves cutting out the mole using a scalpel under local anaesthesia, ensuring complete removal.

Laser removal: Laser mole removal utilises focused light energy to break down the pigment in the mole, causing it to fade or disappear over time.

Shave excision: Shave excision involves shaving off the mole from the skin surface using a surgical blade, typically leaving a smoother surface but with a risk of regrowth.

While all of the above typically cost around the same price, the location and size of the mole which method is used and to what extent which can have a direct impact on the price. 

Location & Size Matters Of Your Mole

The size and location of a mole can significantly impact the cost of its removal. Larger moles generally require more time and resources to remove, potentially leading to higher surgical fees or more extensive procedures. Additionally, moles situated in sensitive or difficult-to-reach areas may require specialised techniques or additional precautions, increasing the overall cost.

Sensitive and difficult areas may include: 

Face: Due to the visibility and delicate nature of facial skin, mole removal on the face requires precision and may involve additional cosmetic considerations.

Scalp: Mole removal on the scalp can be challenging due to hair growth and the potential for scarring, requiring careful consideration of the best approach.

Near joints or folds: Moles located near joints or skin folds, such as the armpits or groyne, may be prone to irritation and require careful management during removal to promote proper healing.
