Removal of a 40x20mm Lypoma. The removal was optional, as this kind of tumour is usually considered as benign and is not normally removed under the NHS unless it causes problems due to location, size or is painful. The charge was £700 and the the clinic waived the £165 consultation fee if the treatment was done the same day. I felt that this was pretty good value.
I recently discovered that I had a large fatty mass over my left shoulder blade while undergoing physiotherapy for a shoulder problem. My physio recommended that I get it checked, so I set up an appointment with Dr Charakida, and was seen the following week. Dr Charakida and her nurse were superb, giving prompt reassurance and a clear diagnosis of a large Lypoma. Dr Charakida gave me the option to either leave it alone or have it removed - there was no pressure to have treatment.
I opted to have it removed, and after a short painless thirty minute procedure, everything was complete. I was given clear instructions for after care, and everything was done with care for my well being.
