In order for the correct procedure to be recommended, it is important for you to have an accurate diagnosis of the lesion being removed. During initial assessment a medical history is taken, the lesion is examined and a diagnosis made. The options of treatment can then be discussed so that you are aware of the risks and benefits of all the surgical treatments available.

Analysis of the lesion removed
For some minor surgery procedures, especially if there is any doubt about the nature of the lesion, it is recommended that the lesion removed is sent for histological examination. This involves the lesion being sent to a histopathologist who will examine the lesion under a microscope.
The cost of the analysis starts from £90-£120 for up to 3 lesions.
