In brief: Yes
In fact, this is the recommended method so that it can be evaluated under the microscope to ensure that the mole is normal.
Moles are normally not removed unless they show clinical features that are worrisome to a dermatologist (abcde's) or for cosmetic reasons.

In brief: Yes
But usually it's not necessary, unless showing features of "atypia".
That's the job of your dermatologist: diagnosis and recommmendation..
