Dr Ratnavel offers a mole screening service with expert assessment of skin lesions and removal for microscopic analysis if appropriate. He has particular experience with rarer skin cancers following 30 years of NHS practice.

It can be difficult without proper training and experience to distinguish between harmless and medically important moles.

Many suspicious moles turn out to be benign seborrheic keratoses (warts). These can be managed easily at the time of consultation with cryotherapy (liquid nitrogen).

Those that require pathological examination (histology) can be removed with local anaesthetic.
