Papillomas

 

What is a Papilloma? 

Most papillomas are caused by a human papillomavirus (HPV) and are benign growths and can vary between 1-4cm in size. Although these are harmless, with any lump or bump found on the body is best to get checked by a professional.

 

Treatment at The Yorkshire Skin Hospital as part of The Lawrence Clinic:

Dr Wright offers a FREE consultation to diagnose the lesion and to see whether surgical removal is the best course of treatment.

 

Take a look at our new website for The Yorkshire Skin Hospital – http://www.yorkshireskinhospital.co.uk  

 

Before your procedure:

  • The Yorkshire Skin Hospital is an Outpatient facility, meaning surgical procedures do not last for more than one hour.
  • Patients do not require a hospital bed, therefore, you are discharged home following a short recovery.
  • All procedures are undertaken under local anaesthesia, making your recovery much quicker and far less of a risk compared to general anaesthesia.
  • For those patients who are a little nervous, we can perform your procedure under light sedation.
  • We offer treatment for those patients under 18 years of age.
  • We provide all our patients with a free 24 hour on-call services following your procedure.

After your procedure:

  • You will be given verbal advice on how to look after your wound, dressings and bathing.
  • If advised, your lesion will be sent to our Histology lab and a report prepared.
  • We advise that you do not drive following your procedure and be accompanied home.
  • An appointment will be arranged for your post-operative follow up and removal of sutures if required.
