Dark or pigmented growths on the skin are referred to commonly as moles. The majority of moles are benign and harmless, if somewhat unsightly. Some skin moles, however, are a sign of major illness and possibly even cancer. Regardless of the severity of the mole, mole removal is a viable option.

Do I need a Mole Removal Procedure?

It is very normal to develop one or several moles throughout your lifetime. Moles can occur anywhere on the surface of the skin, and can be flat or raised. It is not uncommon for skin moles to change shape, size and appearance over a lifetime. In cases where a mole is determined to be cancerous or pre-cancerous (which can be determined with a mole biopsy), mole removal surgery is almost always recommend. More often, however, moles are a cosmetic issue.

Many people with prominent moles, particularly in the facial area, feel that the growth takes away from their overall appearance. Mole removal surgery can help rejuvenate your look and eliminate an unsightly growth altogether.

The only way to determine if you are a candidate for mole removal surgery is to schedule a consultation with an experienced medical professional. Despite what you may have heard about natural mole removal or mole removal at home, these methods are unsafe and not recommended for use.
