Mole Removal and Examinations
At our dermatology centers in Arcadia/Phoenix, Surprise, and Peoria, we specialize in thorough mole examination and expert removal. Moles, also known as nevi, can vary in appearance and sometimes require professional assessment. Our team of experienced dermatologists is dedicated to providing meticulous mole examinations, ensuring any potential concerns are addressed promptly and effectively. Whether it’s a routine evaluation or a mole that needs removal, we prioritize your skin’s health and well-being.
Moles or nevi are very common non-cancerous growths that can occur on any part of the skin. Moles can develop for many reasons and most are not a health risk. Because moles can look different or change over time, and because some moles are skin cancers, it is important for you to have them examined to make sure that they do not develop into something more serious such as a skin cancer.
A visual inspection by our experienced dermatologists is quick and easy.
