Skin Lesion Removal

Skin Lesion Removal in Oklahoma

Skin lesions are abnormal growths or changes on the skin’s surface, which can include moles, warts, skin tags, cysts, and other benign or potentially harmful formations. At Optimum Primary Care, we offer safe and effective removal procedures in Oklahoma for various skin lesions to promote skin health and improve aesthetics. Read below to learn more about our service for getting the removal of skin lesions.

Types of Skin Lesions and Their Characteristics

  • Moles: A group of melanocytes on the skin causes moles, which are tiny, dark spots. While most moles are harmless, some may require removal if they exhibit irregular shapes or grow excessively.
  • Warts: Human papillomavirus (HPV) is the cause of warts, which appear as tiny, rough growths on the skin’s surface. They are usually benign but can be bothersome or unsightly.
  • Skin Tags: Skin tags are small, soft, flesh-colored growths hanging off the skin with a thin stalk. They are non-cancerous and often found in areas of skin friction.
  • Cysts: Cysts are closed sacs filled with fluid or semi-solid material. They can develop under the skin and may require removal if they become infected or cause discomfort.

When to Call Your Doctor Regarding Skin Lesion?

  • Call your doctor promptly if you notice concerning changes in a skin lesion.
  • Seek medical attention for the following symptoms:
    • The rapid growth of the lesion
    • Changes in color or shape
    • Irregular borders
    • Bleeding or itching
    • Any unusual or worrisome signs
  • Early detection and evaluation are crucial for timely treatment if needed.
  • Don’t delay seeking medical advice for skin concerns.
  • Regular skin checks and prompt medical attention can aid in the early detection and management of skin conditions, including skin cancer.

Benefits of Skin Lesion Removal Surgery

  • Medical Indications: Removal of certain types of lesions is essential for diagnostic purposes, especially if concerns about malignancy exist.
  • Cosmetic Enhancement: Removal of unsightly or bothersome skin lesions can improve aesthetics and boost self-confidence.
  • Relief from Discomfort: Large or irritated lesions, such as cysts or skin tags, can cause discomfort or pain and may be removed for relief.

Skin Lesion Removal Procedures in Oklahoma

  • Excision: A surgical procedure that involves cutting out the entire lesion or part of the lesion and suturing the wound.
  • Cauterization: The lesion is removed using an electrical current or a laser, and the area is sealed to prevent bleeding.
  • Cryotherapy: The lesion is frozen using liquid nitrogen, causing it to blister and fall off.
  • Electrosurgery: The lesion is removed using an electric current to simultaneously cut and coagulate the tissue.

Aftercare and Healing Process

After the removal of abnormal skin lesions, following the post-care instructions provided by your healthcare provider is essential. Keep the area clean, avoid picking at the wound, and apply any prescribed ointments or dressings as advised. Healing times may vary depending on the procedure and the size of the lesion.

Possible Side Effects and Complications

While skin tag removal procedures are generally safe, some possible side effects may include:

Pain or Discomfort: Mild pain or discomfort at the removal site after the removal of skin lesions is common and can be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers.

Redness and Swelling: Temporary redness and swelling around the wound are normal and should subside within a few days.

Infection: In rare cases, the wound site may become infected. It is essential to monitor for signs of infection and seek medical attention if necessary.


Local anesthesia is administered before the procedure, ensuring minimal pain or discomfort during removal.

In some cases, it can recur. However, your healthcare provider will assess the lesion and recommend the most appropriate removal method to minimize the likelihood of recurrence.

Scarring is possible but varies depending on the removal method used and the individual's healing process. Your healthcare provider will discuss potential scarring risks and ways to minimize their appearance.
