A mole or lesion on your eyelid may irritate your eye depending on its location, or it may be aesthetically unpleasing for you to look at, causing you to be self-conscious. You may also be concerned with the blemish’s potential for skin cancer. Whatever the reason behind your decision, you may be considering options for mole removal.
Removal typically begins with a consultation before any type of treatment is chosen. Of course, due to the sensitivity of the eye area, great caution and care needs to be taken by our surgeon and medical professionals before removing the blemish. From there, it can be determined if the mole itself can serve as a biopsy for pathology lab submission.
There are various different ways to remove eyelid moles, and the right treatment option for you will depend on a variety of factors, including your wants and needs, as well as our surgeon’s expert opinion and recommendations.
You may need to have your eyelid numbed and shaved off. This is a great way to remove eyelid moles if the mole itself is indicative of potential skin cancer. If the blemish on your eyelid has changed in size, shape, or color, and if it bleeds, you may need to have it excised. The mole and any surrounding tissue may need to be removed. It all depends on the unique situation.
There is information floating around online that indicates eyelid mole removal can be done safely at home through topical or all-natural methods. If this is something you are mulling over, please reconsider, as this can be extremely dangerous. It’s crucial to consult with a professional before taking such drastic measures. You may cause damage to your eye or miss an opportunity to find cancerous cells by doing this without a consultation first.
