Mole Removal Salt Lake City
Moles come in various sizes, shapes, and colors. While most are benign, certain types are at increased risk for malignant transformation – meaning development of skin cancers such as melanoma. Any significant change in any feature of a mole warrants further investigation and sometimes removal of the mole. If you have a mole that has changed significantly or is exceptionally large, evaluation by Dr. Thompson or a dermatologist can be helpful in determining whether or not a biopsy is warranted. These types of evaluations and procedures are typically covered by insurance.
Some patients have benign moles that are simply aesthetically unattractive. In such cases, Dr. Thompson can assist you in determining the most cosmetically acceptable method of mole removal.
In all cases, an appropriate skin care regimen as well as sun protection is critical. See our Skin Care section for more information.
