I have a thick black mole that's on the back of my neck that's hangs is it true if I pick it I will die I just won't it off bad?

But just plucking it off? Nah. However, I would imagine it to be difficult to pick it off completely. Best to have your family doc remove it and send to a pathologist to make sure there's nothing else to worry about. ...Read more
