Treatment for Moles
Surgical excision is a very commonly used method for removing a mole. This method involves cutting out the entire mole and stitching the skin closed.
Biopsy is another method commonly used to shave away the mole. It should be noted that one should never shave off a mole at home. Should skin cancer exist, much of the cancer can remain and possibly spread; at home shaving can also lead to disfigurement and possible infection.
