Keep Up the Good Work

" I am glad that I was granted the opportunity to praise this office. Being a person that never felt good about seeing a doctor, I wait with anticipation about seeing Dr. Seymour Weaver and staff. You guys make me feel comfortable and give me hope that my problem will be cured. Most of all, the staff relaxes me with their sweet smile,great sense of humor, and soothing conversation. If I have to complain about anything, it would be that I didn't discover you, your staff, and my treatments any sooner. Keep up the good work!!!!"

Removing moles in Houston, TX and beyond

A Doctor Examing Patient's Skin

There are many times in which patients in and around Houston, TX are concerned about moles that are present on their skin. They may want them evaluated to determine if they are cancerous, or may want them removed because of their appearance or location on the body. Mole removal is a treatment provided by the team of Dr. W Dermatology.

What is a mole?

A mole is an area of highly pigmented or flesh colored skin that may be present at birth or develop over time. There are several different types of moles which may be seen by a dermatologist. They include:

  • Congenital nevi
  • Dysplastic nevi
  • Intradermal nevi
  • Junctional nevi

Some of these moles may develop into cancerous areas of skin over time, which is why it is important for patients to visit a dermatologist at least once a year for an annual skin cancer screening. Skin cancer screenings should be done to check for changes in moles or other skin tags or growths which may indicate the presence of cancer. However, many patients seek mole removal for cosmetic purposes.

Mole removal

At Dr. W Dermatology, we provide three primary methods of removal for moles, which include:

  • Excision
  • Shave removal
  • Electrocautery

Which form of mole removal is right for me?

Determining which type of mole removal is appropriate for a patient depends greatly on the type of mole present and where it is located on the body. This is best decided with the help of our professionals during a consultation appointment.
