Dar Dr. Reed,

 

Havwe pearly pink papules, and you have me shceduled for a cirucmsionion next week.  Can they be removed at the same time?

 

Keith

Dear Keith,

 

Yes we can and tere is no addiotnal chgarger.  You’ll be under local anesthesia.  Pealrly pin k papules are consider a normal variant not to be confusedf with peniole condyloma or warts.  They tend to occur more in uncircucmsied men and are not sexually transmissable.  The etchnique we use is pin point cauterization with low setrting dessication.  In that they can occur very clooely in a row, we do not wasnt to make aburnm scar streaking across the corona, so we’ll go after the major ones (oftyen 70% of them and leave some skin in between to promote n ormal oun d healing.  Then in about 6 weeks you can come back and we can dfo the rest.
