"Removal of a seborrhoeic wart"

About: Forth Valley Royal Hospital / Dermatology Stirling Community Hospital

(as the patient),

I was worried in case I had a malignant melanoma, a condition which led to the death of my 16 year old son many years ago. I saw Dr. Sinclair, consultant dermatologist at NHS Forth Valley who told me that the wart I had was probably benign but, to be on the safe side , she would refer me to Forth Valley Royal Hospital to have it removed and  a biopsy done. The hospital nurses were David and Angela,both of whom were very friendly and efficient. The biopsy confirmed the presence of a benign lesion.

Thank you, Dr. Sinclair, David and Angela


Response from David Miller, Staff Nurse - Minor Ops Practitioner, Day surgery, NHS Forth Valley

Thank you for letting us know of you experience. I am delighted the biopsy proved to be benign. Angela and I understand how intimidating a hospital visit can be and try to be as informal as is polite, to distract you from the procedure in hand.

Hopefully everything has healed well.

Thanks again
