Treatment for Mole and Wart Removal
What are moles?
The mole is made up of masses of melanocytes, the pigment-producing cells of the skin. Moles, medically called nevi, appear as clusters of pigmented cells that vary in size and color (either brown or black). Most skin moles are harmless, but in rare cases, they can become predisposed to the need for surgical removal. Treatment should always be done by a dermatologist as some serious skin cancers can present as moles.
How are moles treated?
Moles can be easily be removed by dermatologists and their removal is relatively painless. It is a minor procedure and is done on an outpatient basis. Moles can be removed by surgery, laser, or radiofrequency. Your dermatologist may decide the method of excision by judging the depth and size of moles.
Who is eligible for the treatment of moles?
If a mole is painful, oozes or bleeds, itches, or burns, the person should contact a dermatologist immediately. If moles grow back after they are already removed and show any of the asymmetry, border, color, diameter, and evolving, people should contact a medical specialist. Also, if moles develop after the age of 30, they have a greater chance of developing cancer, and therefore, consulting a doctor would be helpful.

Warts are growths on the skin that are caused by the human papillomavirus. Warts can grow on any part of your body and they can grow and spread to other parts of the body as well. Although warts are normally harmless, they can be painful and irritating. Also, it is very bothersome as warts get bigger and start spreading to other parts of the body.
