Risks of Mole Removal Surgery

January 1, 2010

So what are the risks associated with mole removal?  There are a few but in general a mole removal procedure is pretty safe.

The first possible risk is infection.  Our skin is a natural barrier to infection but whenever the surface is scratched, pierced or cut there is a chance that bacteria can enter.

Bleeding is another risk that you have to consider although in the case of mole removal it’s pretty small.  Obviously if you lose too much blood you can die.  This is usually more of an issue with larger procedures.
