In brief: Biopsy

To remove moles we use a small device and the procedure is called punch biopsy, just require topical anesthesia.
It is really simple and takes only a few minutes.

In brief: Not by yourself

It is very important that you do not attempt to remove a mole by yourself.
You should leave this up to your physician. Dermatologists are equipped to perform mole removal quickly with very little pain. Your physician will determine if the mole requires analysis under the microscope to make sure it is normal (benign) and not a skin cancer (malignant).
