Moles can appear at birth or later in life. While some moles may be removed for cosmetic reasons, other moles may be concerning for skin cancer.
Removal of moles is relatively easy. Dr. Sholar will use local anesthesia to numb it, followed by excision.
Depending on the depth of the mole, stitches will either be placed deeper in the wound and/or on the surface of the skin. Stitches are removed after 7 days.
