Shave excision is generally recommended for raised moles. If your mole is flat or large, then we may recommend ellipse excision instead.

During your consultation, a doctor or surgeon would thoroughly inspect your mole in order to properly diagnose the problem and recommend the most appropriate form of treatment.

However, we do welcome emails and enquiries in advance of your appointment, together with pictures. If you’d like to send a photo to, we’ll provide expert advice. It doesn’t replace the need for a consultation appointment, but can be a good way to start.
