Lumps & Bumps Removal
Lumps and bumps are localised swollen areas that occur on or under the skin. Infections, tumours, body’s response to trauma, or injury cause lumps and bumps. Bumps can be caused due to acne, cysts, boils, moles, lipomas, skin rash, or skin cancer.
Lumps are commonly called as tumours which can be benign or malignant. Benign tumours are non-cancerous and do not spread to other parts of the body and may include cysts, nodules, lipomas, haematoma, hemangioma, and papilloma.
Malignant tumours are cancerous tumours which include Basal cell, squamous cell and melanomas that can invade the surrounding tissue and spread to other parts of the body.
Most small lesions can be removed under local anaesthetic in our office:
