Skin surgery

You may need to have a lump removed. This can be done painlessly and quickly under local anaesthetic, so that you are up and about within half an hour.

Shave and curettage

This is a simple procedure for lumps that are not cancerous.


A biopsy is small 3-4mm sample of skin that gets sent to the lab so you can have a lab based diagnosis of your skin condition.
