Whether you have referred yourself, or been referred by your GP or other specialist the consultant will discuss the nature of your problem and any other relevant information, such as your general medical history and family history. Clinical examination will take place.

After clinical examination and discussion with the consultant, if it is felt appropriate to proceed to surgery under local anaesthetic you will be asked to sign a consent form and the nurse will show you to the changing area and prepare for theatre. If you do not wish to proceed with immediate surgery then a future date can be agreed to return to have the procedure undertaken.

On examination if the nature or size of the lesion indicates that surgery should not be undertaken under local anaesthetic then arrangements can be made for you to have an operation under general anaesthetic at a later date.

Following surgery the nurse will provide you with wound care advice and make an appointment to attend for removal of sutures and to discuss the histopathology results, where appropriate.
