Skin Lesions

Our consultant Mr Michael McBride FRCS (Plast) describes the procedures available for skin lesions and cancers at Fitzwilliam Clinic.

The skin and soft tissue of our body is composed of several tissue types and unique cells lines.  Skin and soft tissue lesions can be present from birth or become acquired throughout our lifetime.  They can be discoloured, raised, change size, ooze, bleed, cause altered sensation / pain, or be a deeper swelling.  Common conditions include skin tags, warts, moles, skin cancer, cysts and lipomas.  Whether you are seeking removal for aesthetic purposes or because of concerns regarding their appearance, change in size, colour, shape, texture – your skin lesion will be assessed by a consultant plastic surgeon, with a tailored treatment method advised.  This will range from surgical excision or shave excision and will include histological laboratory analysis if indicated.   Following removal, our experts will provide a timely / efficient diagnosis and counsel on any follow up treatments or check-ups required.
