The best methods of removal Nevi – Moles

A mole that bothers you aesthetically, that is in a spot that “pokes” at your clothes, that you injure when shaving or a mole that makes you anxious about whether it is benign or not is a mole that should be examined by a dermatologist.

Most people have many moles, moles as we call them, on our bodies that are probably innocent. Examination by a dermatologist once a year, or more often if there is a personal or family history of melanoma, is important to make sure that a suspicious change has not started in one of the moles.

If the dermatologist decides that a nevus needs to be removed, removal is a very quick and simple medical procedure. Depending on the type of wart, the doctor will choose the best method of removal, surgical removal or excision (shave).

  • The removal of a nevus is done under local anesthesia in the dermatology clinic

  • The removal procedure usually takes 20-30 minutes

  • Shave excision and surgery are the two main techniques for removing moles

  • Removal is painless, leaves no scar and you can return to your daily activities immediately

  • According to the medical protocol, each nevus removed is sent for biopsy

  • Laser nevus removal is only chosen if the nevus is considered 100% benign

Why it is so important to check for nevi

Examining the moles on our body before going to the beach, after holidays and whenever we notice changes in an existing mole is an extremely important prevention for skin cancer and melanoma, recommends Dr. Konstantina Mamali, Dermatologist – Aphrodisiologist.

Don’t do it like Kardashian!

Kim Kardashian may choose the tanning bed, but Dr. Amalia Tsiatoura, Dermatologist – Aphrodisiologist, has her objections – and rightly so. Regular exposure to tanning beds significantly increases the risk of melanoma, one of the most aggressive forms of cancer. Listen to the doctor and don’t push your luck!


What it is

Moles are a benign proliferation of melanin cells that are naturally found on the skin and can vary in colour, shape and size.

Some moles are present from birth (congenital), while others develop in the first few decades of life (acquired). The number and type of moles one has on the face and body depends on genetic and hereditary factors, and exposure to the sun can affect their appearance, which explains why their incidence is increased on parts of the body exposed to sunlight.

Although the majority of body moles will be and remain benign, if we notice any change in an existing mole or the appearance of a new one, it is important to be evaluated by a dermatologist who, through the clinical picture, taking a medical history and a simple dermoscopy examination, will determine whether or not an investigation is needed.

Nevi moles. What they are.

Moles Changes that lead us to the dermatologist

In the early stages of melanoma, there are 5 signs that can help diagnose it early. The “golden” rule of self-examination, or the “ABCDE” rule, is based on the following characteristics:

  • A for Αsymmetry

  • B for Border

  • C for Color

  • D for Diameter

  • E for Evolution/Elevation

  • If you notice any of the above changes in a mole, talk to your dermatologist immediately


The main methods of removal

Shave Excision of a mole

Excision of the mole is a simple and quick way of removal for moles that show evidence of malformation. The doctor applies a local anaesthetic and then removes the protruding part of the mole, making sure that the cells under the skin are also removed.

The wound is closed with stitches, depending on the size of the nevus removed, and the nevus is sent for a biopsy to check if there are cancer cells and if it is completely removed. It is possible that a CO2 laser or diathermy may be followed to stop the bleeding (haemostasis) and additional removal of any residual part of the nevus may be done.

Any nevus that is removed is sent for biopsy in order for the pathologist to investigate its morphology.

Surgical removal of a mole

When the nevi are flat or when malignancy is suspected, preventive surgical excision of the nevi and the borders around the excision by the dermatologist or plastic surgeon is recommended, so that they can be sent for biopsy.

After removal, one or more stitches may be needed and it is possible that no scar will be left at all. However this depends on the size of the mole removed, how it was removed and the body’s ability to heal.

Any nevus that is removed is sent for biopsy in order for the pathologist to investigate its morphology.

Skin cancer


If a new nevus (mole) with an irregular shape appears or if one notices that an existing nevus has changed, it is important to seek medical advice from a dermatologist. Characteristics of the lesion may include a change in size, shape or colour, as well as ulceration (wound formation) or bleeding. The places where moles usually appear are mainly the back, hands, feet or face, as well as the genitals. In men it occurs mainly on the trunk, while in women it occurs on the lower limbs.

Melanoma is a less common but extremely aggressive type of skin cancer. The damage is caused by melanin cells, the cells that produce melanin, the pigment that gives the skin its characteristic colour. In advanced stages, melanoma can metastasise and even lead to death.
