Can my general practitioner perform a mole removal? Can i just go to my regular doctor for mole removal or do I need to see a specialist? .

In brief: Mole surgery

I would recommend a dermatologist for any mole removal.
A minimum 3 year dermatology residency offers patients the most expertise in this arena.

In brief: Typically

Typically procedures like this are done by a specialist to ensure that the lesion is completely remove, properly closed and the tissue is submitted for microscopic diagnosis to rule out pathology.
