Lumps & Bumps | Brentwood

There are many common conditions that require surgical removal either to relieve symptoms or get a definitive histological diagnosis.

Examples of such conditions include:

  • Papilloma of skin

  • Warts

  • Sebaceous cyst

  • Lipoma

  • Neurofibroma

  • Dermoid cyst

  • Pigmented moles

  • Ingrowing toenails

  • Infected sweat glands

  • Pilonidal sinus

  • Solar keratosis

  • Localised Skin cancers

Surgery for these conditions can often be undertaken under local anaesthetic in outpatients setting but sometimes general anaesthetic may be necessary depending on the size of the lesion and exact location.
