Seen Any Changes in Your Moles Lately? In-Office Mole Removal with Dr. Oldham of Bethesda

Two factors can lead to the sudden appearance of skin lesions like moles: age and sun exposure. But, time is on your side; the sooner you schedule an appointment with a board certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Roger J. Oldham, the better your chances of routine mole removal before it becomes pre-cancerous. Dr. Oldham is a cosmetic and reconstructive surgeon who has dedicated more than 25 years to the patients of Bethesda and the greater Washington D.C. area. He has been voted “Bethesda’s Best” Plastic Surgeon and Washingtonian Magazine’s “Top Doctor” in plastic surgery practice. More than half of the patients he sees every week come to him not for breast augmentation or liposuction, but rather for the convenience and peace of mind that comes with in-office mole removal.

If you have found that, over time, your skin seems to acquire more and more skin lesions or moles, you should begin to watch them as they progress. There are five factors to be aware of in order to prevent cancer and catch it before a skin lesion becomes malignant. Be on the lookout for these signs of change in: symmetry (asymmetry can be a sign of a pre-cancerous lesion), outline (moles should be generally round and have a clear border), color (light brown is typical, red is not), diameter (large moles carry increased risk), or other changes in appearance (including crusting or bleeding). If you notice any of these changes, you should be in contact with a dermatologist or plastic surgeon sooner rather than later. Of course, the benefits of mole removal with a plastic surgeon are obvious. Plastic surgeons like Dr. Oldham can perform the excision of any lesion with minimal scarring, particularly on the face.
