Angiofibromas are benign 1-5mm fleshy to pink small bumps (“papules”) that are very common on or near the nose and look like small moles. They are a cosmetic nuisance for some patients, but are not dangerous and cannot turn into skin cancer.
Angiofibromas can be safely & effectively removed by shave excision or electrosurgery, and less commonly using liquid nitrogen. Do not attempt self-removal of angiofibromas as that can often lead to permanent scars. Angiofibroma removal in Toronto Dermatology Centre is a commonly performed procedure with great results.
Toronto Dermatology Centre is located in Toronto, Ontario, and serves men and women in North York, Vaughan, Richmond Hill, York, Aurora, Thornhill, Mississauga, Etobicoke, Scarborough, Pickering, Peterborough, Guelph, Kitchener, Waterloo, Hamilton, Oshawa, Barrie, downtown, midtown, uptown and all of Greater Toronto (GTA).
