The cost for removing
a benign skin lesion at Staffordshire Skin Surgery is £410.
This includes the consultation fee of £75 plus
£335 to remove the skin lesion.
Removal of a second
skin lesion at the same visit is sometimes possible. The cost to remove
an additional lesion can be discussed during the consultation and will
depend on the size of the skin lesion and the type of surgery needed
to remove it.
In a very small
number of cases, we may not be able to remove the skin lesion in this
clinic, which is for the removal of simple, benign skin lesions. The
most likely reason for this is when examination of the skin lesion raises
the suspicion of a skin cancer, or if removal of the skin lesion requires
complex surgery to ensure a good cosmetic outcome. In this situation,
you will be given advice on the alternative treatment options, and only
pay the consultation fee of £75.
Most skin tag, warts and other benign skin lesions are easily diagnosed
on clinical examination. Sometimes the diagnosis is not clear, or national
guidelines advise that the skin lesion is sent for histopathological
analysis. There is an additional charge of £210
for histopathological analysis.
