Mole, Cyst, Wart and Skin Tag removal

Lichfield Skincare provides a convenient, quick, skin surgery service to remove moles, warts, cysts, skin tags and other skin growths.

What happens during a consultation for mole removal?
At the first visit, the skin lesion is thoroughly examined, and possible treatments are discussed, including the costs involved. Some people choose to have treatment at the first visit, others prefer to think about the options and to book a further appointment should they decide to proceed.

In most cases, Moles (Benign Intradermal Naevus) and Skin Tags can be removed by shave biopsy. After numbing the skin, the skin lesion is sliced off flush to the skin, and any small bleeding points stopped. This gives a flat, faint scar which is usually skin coloured. A dressing is kept on for 2 days after the procedure.


Shave Biopsy of a Benign Intradermal Naevus

Cysts are removed by making a small hole in the centre of the cyst, then removing the contents and the cyst wall. This leaves only a small, short scar once the stitches are removed.


A typical Scalp Cyst and multiple Seborrhoeic Warts on the back

Brown flat moles are usually excised (cut out) and the area closed with stitches. In keeping with National Guidelines, this type of mole is sent for analysis. The cost of analysis depends on the number of histology tests needed to make a diagnosis and starts from £130.

Some skin lesions, such as small, flat seborrhoeic warts or viral warts can be treated with cryotherapy (freezing), rather than surgery.

Price List
There is a consultation fee of £160 which covers the cost of a full examination, explanation of the procedure, and documenting consent.

Procedure Fees
Shave Biopsy – £200
Cyst Removal – £250
Excision of a pigmented skin lesion – £300
Cryotherapy – £50

Sometimes, more than one lesion can be removed at the same visit – the cost will depend on the number of lesions, and will be discussed prior to any procedure.
