Minor skin surgery

We diagnose and carry out minor surgery at One Life Hartlepool for skin lesions (lumps or bumps on your skin).

We can help you if you have:

  • low risk basal cell carcinoma (a common skin cancer)
  • benign (not cancerous) skin lesions which might be causing a problem and need treatment
  • Bowens disease (an early form of skin cancer)
  • Keloid scars (a scar which becomes lumpy and larger than the wound it is healing)

I had removal of a skin tag. It was painless and very quick- I appreciate your help and for seeing me so quickly.

Our team includes a GP with a special interest, theatre nurse specialist, nurses and health care assistants. We treat children over 10 years and adults who have been referred to us by their GP or nurse practitioner.
