Have it checked!: If you are worried have it checked. See a board certified dermatologist and get it looked at. Most moles evolve (in color and size) and this can occur during puberty, pregnancy or other conditions where there is hormone changes. However, some people are at a higher risk (skin color, history of sunburns, family history of melanoma, dysplastic nevus syndrome). Go to website www.Skincancer.Org. ...Read more

Needs an exam: It is hard to answer your question without an examination. Your description is concerning. 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

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

How do I remove a mole? I have a mole on my breast. It almost looks like a large freckle. I also have a mole on my bikini line.

There : There are many different types of pigmented skin lesions, or moles. Some of these may be present for your whole life and never demonstrate any significant change. Typically, these are the characteristics of a benign (non-cancerous) mole. Moles become more concerning when they begin to exhibit change and abcd characteristics (asymmetry, irregular borders, change, and diameter greater than 6cm). Any changing skin lesion should be evaluated by your board certified plastic surgeon or dermatologist to determine whether a biopsy should be performed. Typically, a small mole will be evaluated with an "excisional biopsy, " or complete removal of the mole and evaluation by a pathologist. A larger mole or skin lesion may initially be evaluated with an "incisional or punch biopsy, " which will remove a piece of the mole to determine if any additional treatment is necessary. Scarring is usually minimal with either technique, and while the scar of an excisional biopsy may be slightly longer than the diameter of the original mole, the scar is usually less noticeable than the mole was. When in doubt, please have your doctor take a look! all the best, dr. Skourtis. ...Read more
