Unlikely: Try fomentation to facilitate the release of material accumulated under the skin. Do not try to pop it as that only leads to a larger scar.

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.

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.

Others : Others here have described moles that need to be checked out for fear of cancer. The important thing to understand is that the only way to completely remove a true mole is to completely remove the entire thickness of skin encompassing the mole. This means there will be a permanent scar no matter how inconspicuous it may eventually turn out. Also, most moles are roughly round in shape leaving a round hole in the skin after removal that does not lend itself to a simple closure. If the circle is small, say 2-3 mm then a simple closure may work. Wounds larger than 3mm will not lay down flat with simply closing them using stitches. They need to be elongated into an ellipse to close properly. Many patients have trouble understanding why removing a 6mm mole will result in a scar 1.5 cm long. That is why it is important to try and decide if the mole is being removed for cosmetic reasons or medical reasons. Any mole can be biopsied with a 2mm skin punch to determine if there is medical reason to remove it with little to no visible scarring. Any person seeking cosmetic mole removal needs to weigh the appearance of the mole versus what the scar would look like if it healed well and if it healed not so well. ...Read more
