LUMPS & BUMPS


  • Information

People often describe localized swollen areas on, or under, the skin as lumps or bumps. While bumps on, or under, the skin may result from conditions that give rise to a skin rash, many other conditions can result in solitary raised lumps on the skin. Infections, tumors, and the body’s response to trauma or injury can all lead to lumps or bumps that appear to be located on or underneath the skin.  From moles to warts, acne to milia, skin tags to cysts; lumps and bumps on the skin can appear in all sorts of shapes, sizes, colours and numbers.

Depending upon the cause, skin lumps or bumps may vary in size and be firm or soft to the touch. The overlying skin may be reddened or ulcerated. Skin bumps may or may not be painful or tender, depending upon the cause of the lesion.

It is very essential that any lump or bump is correctly diagnosed by a medical doctor.

We offer Free First Consultation with one of our Surgeons  they will also be able to advise you the best treatment for your condition.

POSSIBLE TREATMENTS

All our proicedures performed by our experienced Surgeons in our minor surgery accrediated  CQC registered medical centre .

Surgical Excision:  This procedure performed under local anaesthesia typically used to remove moles, cysts ,lipoma and even warts or skin tags, this method involves using a sharp scalpel to cut out the skin growth. Stitches are usually required after this procedure.

Hyfrecation/ ElectroSurgery: A hyfrecator is commonly used in surgical procedures , which delivers low energy electrical pulses to cauterize (burn) tissue. There may be some redness following this treatment type, but this will subside after a day or two and results are usually immediate.

Laser Removal: Removal of a skin growth / wart/verrucae can also be done using laser. The high precision laser beam targets the cells of the skin growth, breaking them down using thermal energy.

Cryotherapy: This method involves liquid nitrogen being used to essentially freeze off the skin growth by constricting the blood supply to it due to the cold temperature. It may take some time for the growth to disappear after this treatment, and in some cases the lump or bump may need multiple sessions.

Mom had a long-standing issue with her right earlobe damaged due to her previous piercings. Dr Rizvi and the other... staff were very professional and polite during Mom’s main surgery (minor) and follow up appointments to remove the stitches. We are very satisfied with the surgical results and the care provided and will certainly go back to First Health Medical if the need arises.read more

Had Morpheus 8 with Dr Rizvi, which I would recommend very highly. Dr Rizvi is highly professional and extremely kind... and puts you at ease and explains the procedure. Skin tightening procedure which although a bit uncomfortable, very bearable and other than a bit of redness no other after effects. The results are fantastic, my skin is thicker and my jawline a lot firmer. I would recommend the clinic most highly.read more

Dr Rizvi has been absolutely superb, very knowledgable, friendly and helpful. However the lady at the reception Justina... has been very unprofessional. I have paid the asked amount at the reception and after I left the surgery she phoned me to return back to the surgery and pay the remaining £25 as she undercharged me, she was saying it like I was suppose to know the correct amount. I wouldn’t expect this kind of service from a private surgery. Very disappointing.read more

I used the service to have fillers. Very impressed with the sensitive professional care I received. Dr Rizvi carried... out the procedure. She explained in detail what was involved, and ensured my comfort at all times. I'm very happy with the outcome. I feel I'm looking very fresh and natural...more like my old self which I haven't seen in years.read more

What can I say about Dr. Rizvi. I read some of her outstanding reviews before meeting her but having had a session to... remove a couple of moles I can tell you words cannot do her justice.She is obviously highly skilled but also creates such a warm and caring atmosphere. You feel completely looked after and you can tell this comes from a place of her wanting to use her talents to help people in the best way she can. She truly is an incredible woman and I can’t recommend her enough!read more

What a wonderful caring sweet doctor. Professional and knowledgeable. I felt comfortable and respected. I was given... clear honest answers when I had questions. For the first time ever I was looking forward to seeing a doctor for the second time for stitches removal. I would highly recommend first health medical. The staff are all so friendly and accommodating. I’m still in awe with the doctor, she was just such a lovely woman with positive and warm energy, I felt in safe hands when I was having minor surgery. I can not praise this centre enough!read more
