Mole Removal: I would strongly suggest against attempting to remove any growths on your own, by any means. Although the growth has been examined by a physician, anytime a lesion is removed, it should be sent for pathology evaluation to make sure with certainty that it is not in fact something dangerous. I highly recommend you seek out a dermatologist or plastic surgeon to have this condition cared for.
