Removal of Moles and Nevi
Moles, blemishes and nevi on the face and neck may represent either benign lesions or potential pathological conditions. An experienced professional must examine these lesions on a regular basis.
Dr. Klausner will examine your skin and record any lesions that appear suspicious. Clinical signs of a potential pathologic condition may include lesions with:
- irregular borders
- multiple colors
- changes in size or shape
- appearance of new lesions
- ulceration or bleeding
If indicated, an incisional biopsy (removal of a portion of the lesion) or excisional (removal of the entire lesion) biopsy may be performed safely in the office. All specimens are sent to a specialized pathology laboratory for review.
