Moles and Skin Growths in West Palmdale, CA

At Sandhu Dermatology & Med Spa, we offer routine mole checks for patients of the Greater West Palmdale, CA area. Most adults have some type of mole or skin growth on their body somewhere. A mole is a lesion on the skin that is caused by a bundle of pigmented cells. During mole evaluations, we analyze, measure, and document the size, shape, and development of moles and other skin growths on the body to guarantee they're safe and not changing or cancerous. They may be black, brown, or a combination of the colors and could appear independently or in groups. Moles may also be flush with the skin or seem like a round bulge. While most are harmless, some may develop into cancer. If you have moles and are uncertain about the severity of one, or if one has become bothersome, it's essential to inform a professional — especially when one begins to change in size or shape or starts to itch or bleed.

Most moles do not need treatment unless they become cancerous or suspicious, or if they cause irritation, discomfort, or aesthetic issues. In these situations, your mole or growth might need to be excised. During surgical excision, the area near the mole or growth will be numbed with a local anesthetic, and a scalpel or similar tool will be used to remove the mole and some surrounding skin cells. The wound is then closed with sutures. When the mole is surface level, a surgical shave can be utilized where the area is numbed and a small blade is used to cut all around and beneath the mole. Stitches aren't required with this procedure.

At Sandhu Dermatology & Med Spa, we know that moles and skin growths can cause stress and anxiety that interfere with your overall well-being. With several location options for you to choose from, treating these lesions at one of our practices in West Palmdale, Ridgecrest, and Tehachapi, CA is a simple option to ease your mind and provides a variety of benefits, such as:

  • Quick, in-office procedure
  • Lessens tenderness in the affected area
  • Increases confidence
  • Decreases the chance of cancer or malignancy

This is a great dermatologist. Highly recommended. I had 2 moles removed by Dr. Sandhu, and he did a fantastic job, especially for both moles being on my head. I also received 2 separate courtesy calls from his office to check if the healing of them were going well. If I ever have a similar need I will definitely be going back to him.
