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?

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 moreGet help from a doctor now ›
