I’ve had moles my entire life. Should I be concerned? Dr. Roger J. Oldham talks about mole removal

An expert in evaluating skin lesions, Dr. Roger J. Oldham has established an in-office surgery center for the removal of non-cancerous skin lesions like moles, and cancers like basal cell carcinomas, squamous cell carcinoma and melanoma. In his 25+ years as a plastic surgery practitioner, Dr. Roger J. Oldham has seen the consequence of a lifetime of sun exposure, both sun burns and tanning, in his patients. Skin enhancement through prevention is the most recommended action for patients with concerns about the health of their skin. Dr. Roger J. Oldham, an experienced board-certified plastic surgeon, specializing in cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgery, can help bring your skin back to life.

While most are benign, moles or skin lesions, more than ever before, are turning out to be malignant with the potential to be life threatening or to cause severe disfigurement. Some types of moles or other skin lesions are with us at birth, while others develop over time as a result of age, disease, or environmental factors. Whatever their cause, whether they are benign or malignant, skin lesions and moles are often unwanted and although many are harmless, they can be removed for health or cosmetic reasons. Many skin growths, including moles, remain in an intermediate phase and are benign, but some skin lesions which develope suspicious features maintain the capacity to become malignant over time if left untreated. Of paramount importance is determining that the lesion is benign and harmless. Mole removal and the treatment of moles and other skin growths is very individualized, depending upon the nature of the lesion, any history of change, the age of the patient, and the location on the body. Your skin’s health is important.
