Cysts and moles are quite common and most often benign and harmless. But if you’ve got concerns and would rather have them removed, Nease Cosmetic Surgery offers cyst and mole removal for men and women in Scottsboro, Ft. Payne, Huntsville and neighboring communities of north Alabama.
What is Cyst and Mole Removal?
Almost everyone has moles somewhere on their skin and many people have also had an experience with cysts at some point. Most of the time, cysts and moles occupy a space (or multiple spaces) on the body and cause no harm or trouble.
But sometimes they need to be removed. Cysts can get inflamed, often becoming tender or infected and need to be drained or removed. Moles can become a concern when their appearance changes or they develop other symptoms that cause discomfort or concern.
Cysts and moles are usually quickly and easily removed in the office or clinic as an outpatient procedure.
How Much Does Cyst and Mole Removal Cost in North Alabama and Huntsville area?

- Eliminating rubbing or chafing by a raised mole or fluid containing cyst
- Enhancing appearance when a mole or cyst develops in a cosmetically awkward spot

Am I a Good Candidate for Cyst and Mole Removal?
In most cases, if you’re a healthy adult and have a mole or cyst that bothers or concerns you, you’ll likely be a good candidate for cyst or mole removal. Even if the cyst or mole is benign, if it makes you feel self-conscious because you think it’s unsightly, that’s often reason enough for removal.
During your initial consultation, the doctor will help make sure your expectations are in alignment with what’s possible and if mole or cyst removal is in your best interest to help you achieve your goals. If not, he can help you explore other options that may serve you better.
What is Cyst and Mole Removal Recovery Like?
Typically there is very little, if any, downtime needed following mole or cyst removal. You will likely be able to resume your normal activities by the next day.
Depending on the extent and type of removal, you may have a few stitches or you may be instructed to watch for the formation of a scab, which will fall off within a few days.
For optimal recovery results, be sure to read and closely follow any post-treatment instructions you may be given following your cyst and mole removal procedure.
