Most moles don't require any treatment, but a mole may need to be removed if it's potentially cancerous and poses a risk to your health. Additionally, a mole can also be removed if it’s causing you discomfort or simply for aesthetic reasons. Dr. Hayag will examine your skin and take note of any moles that are candidates for biopsy or removal. She’ll discuss the best mole removal option for you to ensure a safe, thorough, and quick procedure. If you receive stitches, you will likely need to come back after two weeks to have them removed. You may experience mild soreness and itchiness, but no severe pain as you heal.
