Safe Mole Removal

While some people are lucky not to have moles or any marks on their body, many people were born or have developed these blemishes on their body. My sister has a brown mole on her right neck. Although it doesn't really bother her, my mom is worried it might be cancerous because it grew bigger. It used to be just a dot but but now it's about the size of a pea. Mom consulted her dermatologist friend about it and according to the doctor, hers is harmless. My sister felt relieved that she didn't have to go through surgery because of her mole.

Some moles are cancerous and should be removed by an expert to avoid the cancer from spreading. I have heard of some ways to remove moles without surgery; still, the safest mole removal for me should be done by a doctor. I would feel a lot safer in the hands of a doctor than use home remedies that are not proven effective. And if the mole is not really harmful, I don't see any reason why you should have it removed. Moles are not ugly. In fact, some people find it sexy. Unreliable mole removals may leave a scar on your face and I would rather have the mole than the scar.

If you have a mole on your body and you are afraid it might be cancerous, here's a resource you might find useful. According to the article common moles are cancerous, but if you notice some changes in an existing mole, it would be best to tell your doctor about it.

One last piece of advice, you should think carefully and seek professional help before trying to remove a mole on your face. It can be a painful process if you try to do it on your own and there are downsides; scarring and inflammation are just some of them.
