Moles are usually harmless, and do not need to be removed, unless they are showing irregularities or changes, in which case a doctor may advise you to have the mole removed for safety.

In some cases, especially when the moles are raised, they may be a regularly nuisance or cause of injury if you accidentally cut them whilst shaving, or if they catch on your clothing.

What is a skin mole & mole removal treatments

It is common to have a lot of moles of varying shapes and sizes, but some moles are larger and more unsightly than others, and you may wish to have them removed for cosmetic reasons.

When a mole is causing a nuisance, it can be removed through a process of shave excision, in which a scalpel is used to level the mole to the same level as the skin, and then the remaining wound is cauterised with heat, to close it and stop any bleeding.

This process also allows the mole to be sent to a laboratory for testing, to determine whether or not it is precancerous. It is also possible to have your moles removed with laser treatment, but it is important to have the mole tested for pathology prior to having this done.

Another method of mole removal is excision, in which the mole is cut out. The risks of these procedures are minor, especially when done by a specialist dermatologist.

What to do next

If you are concerned about scarring or unsure as to whether to have any skin abnormalities removed, it is best to speak to a dermatologist who can evaluate your situation and help you make the best and safest decision.

Do my moles need to be removed?
Moles are usually harmless, and do not need to be removed, unless they are showing irregularities or changes in shape, colour, or elevation, in which case a doctor may suspect skin cancer and advise you to have the mole removed for safety. You may also wish to have a mole removed if it is a nuisance or regular cause of injury (through shaving or catching on zippers, for example).
A mole can be removed through a process called shave excision, where a scalpel is used to level the mole to the same level as the skin. The remaining wound is then cauterised with heat, to close it and stop any bleeding.
The risks of mole removal procedures are minor, especially when performed by a specialist. Some scarring may be possible; the dermatologist can discuss any concerns with you.
