Moles???: Best to see a doctor to evaluate and decide if surgical excision is indicated...
Dr. Susan Rhoads

Minor surgery.: A mole can only be removed by excision (cutting it out). If the moles are in a place where scarring is a concern, see a plastic surgeon. If the mole is changing, see a dermatologist for evaluation and possible biopsy or excision

Mole removal: A small injection of numbing medicine such as Lidocaine is used prior to the procedure. An instrument is then used to remove the mole ( this is painless now that area is numb) sometimes stitches are placed other times the area is allowed to heal on its own. Talk to a dermatologist to determine which technique is best for certain moles in certain locations.

Mole: No home remedies recommended. A dermatologist would remove the mole and have it tested to make sure there is no cancer present.

Possible excision: Multiple spots and moles can't all be removed. If they are suspicious then surgical excision is needed. One must watch out that they are not looking at the development of early keratosis since many of them appear as moles and should be left behind.
