It is concerning when moles change - change in size, color, become irregularly shaped, itch, bleed. Most moles are relatively easy to remove and test. Please see your primary doctor or a surgeon to see if this needs to be removed and tested. ...Read more

I have a large flat brown mole on my breast, it hasn't changed but i've thought about getting it checked how would it be removed since on my breast?

The exact same way : As it would be removed from any body area. If it's sufficiently suspicious to indicate biopsy, it should be removed in its entirety, but, since it's on your breast, only by an abps- certified plastic surgeon. Recently, the consensus is that shave biopsy is adequate & leaves a slightly depressed, hypo pigmented scar that can be subsequently revised, but excision with sutures is isually preferable. ...Read more
