Skin mole treatments do not come without risks, and right now, we are going to tackle four of them. By the end of this article, we should finally have an understanding of how these risks came about. Finally, we will be looking at the measures through which the respective treatment risks can possibly be avoided or, at the very least, mitigated. We will know what to avoid and what to apply so the risks would not come into play. You can expect skin mole treatments to be of an invasive nature. No pill or medicine has yet been formulated to be abl to magically erase skin moles after drinking several pills or tablets of them. Treating skin moles thus either involves the excision (cutting) of the moles, or the cauterization of the moles. Both procedures are of an invasive nature. Since they are invasive, there are risks involved when they are employed as treatments.

The first major risk faced by people undergoing skin mole treatments is infection. It is a risk that is present even if you are careful in choosing which treatment to use between excision and cauterization. But, to be sure, the risk is higher in cases where the procedure involves simple excision. It is a scenario where pathogens (mostly bacteria) take advantage of the skin openings created during the mole removal procedure to gain access into the body, where they can proceed to wreck great havoc (by causing diseases). The risks of infection would be lower if you conduct that procedure in an area that is both clean and sanitary. Many people ignore this part, thinking it's just a minor surgery anyway. There would be lower chances of infection if the medical practitioner or the doctor who is performing the skin mole treatment undertakes it with the same amount of care and diligence he practices in major operations or surgeries. The same precautions should be taken, especially when it comes to sterilization of the surgical instruments used as well as prepping the surgical environment. After the treatment, there should also be post-operative care to ensure that infections won't crop up after the skin mole treatment.

Skin mole treatments also expose patients to the risk of anesthetic allergy. The use of anesthesia is important, especially since the roots of moles are located under the skin, with some of them even going deeper than the others. However, there are some anesthetic agents that can cause allergies when administered to some people. It would be difficult to mitigate this risk for the simple reason that it is also difficult to tell whether a patient is predisposed to be allergic to the anesthetic agent that will be given.

The third of the four main risks that are associated with skin mole treatment is the risk of nerve damage. This can be mitigated if the medical practitioner carrying out the treatment is very careful. In the course of the procedure, some nerves could go all over the place without any provocation. This could be due to certain anatomical differences among patients.

And the fourth major risk associated with skin mole treatment is the risk of scar formation. While it is true that you succeeded in eliminating the skin mole, you would end up with a scar that looks even uglier than the mole did. It would turn out that the scars are even more difficult to get rid of. All hope is not lost, though. There are still things you can do to hide the appearance of these scars and mask their presence.
