Discover Our Benign Mole Removal Procedures

Having moles is a completely natural aspect of being human. These small, pigmented or nonpigmented lesions that appear on our skin are clusters of cells called melanocytes responsible for producing skin pigment. Often, they can take on various hues ranging from light pink to even black, appearing either flat or raised, oval or circular in shape. However, why might you be thinking of mole removal in the UK? 

While most moles are harmless, there are times when they can become more than just a visual concern, especially if you've noticed any changes in their appearance.

Considering a private mole removal for cosmetic or practical reasons? Perhaps certain moles catch on your clothes or accessories, causing discomfort. Or maybe you’ve been pondering a body mole removal to boost your confidence in summer clothing. Regardless of the reason, Dr. Rippon and our dedicated team at Rippon Medical Services are here to guide and assist you on this journey.

What are Moles?
Moles are small coloured spots on the skin that grow in a cluster instead of being spread throughout the skin.  These spots are made up of cells called melanocytes, which produce the colour or pigment in your skin.  Moles may darken after exposure to the sun, during puberty and during pregnancy and can range from pink or brown to black in colour.  Moles may present flat or raised, oval or circular and are common, you can be born with them, inheriting them genetically or they can form from sun exposure. Although number of moles varies from person to person, fair skinned people generally have more moles due to lower amounts of melanin in their skin, and the average adult has between 10 and 40 moles.

Most of the time these moles are harmless. However, we need to conduct skin checks regularly (Dr Rippon recommends monthly, especially if you have a relative with skin cancer, or at least every three months) to see if our moles have changed. In rare circumstances a cancer known as Melanoma can arise within a pre-existing mole.  These moles will need to be removed for the safety of the patient.  In most cases however, moles are benign and harmless.  Often, patients would like them removed for cosmetic or practical reasons as they often catch on clothing or jewellery causing discomfort.
