Removal of a nevus: Mole removal involves excision of a nevus. This could involve either shaving off a raised skin lesion or cutting out a flat skin lesion. This can be done either for cosmetic reasons (unsightly mole) or to rule out skin cancer. I hope this information is helpful. Stephen weber, M.D., f.A.C.S. Lone tree facial plastic surgeon.
