  • Warts and Verrucae
    these are harmless benign lesions; however, they can be troublesome due to discomfort or unsightly. Common methods of removal will be freezing with a special chemical cold spray. This delicate procedure has been carried out hundreds of times by Dr Nishel.
  • Skin tags
    Also called. Patients often consult for removal of these lesions due to their unsightly nature or that they irritate when around the necklace line or bra line. Men also find them troublesome in friction areas like the groin and armpit. Removal can be achieved either by using a chemical freezing spray or excision under local anaesthetic.
  • Seborrheic warts
    A common problem as our skin ages. Although they sometimes look nasty these are in fact totally benign but it requires the skills of a doctor to be able to help distinguish these from more serious skin conditions. Removal of these lesions is a very popular request. Dr Nishel either uses a chemical freezing spray (recurrent courses may be required) or excision under local anaesthetic.
  • Ganglion removal
    These can commonly occur on the wrist and removal is often requested for cosmetic reasons. Sometimes they can be painful if they sit on the nerves. A popular way of treating these is by aspiration. They can recur and patients often re-attend for further treatments.
