Almost everyone has a few moles or has heard of them. Although the majority of these moles are benign, on rare occasions they can become a health concern. We recommend that if you are concerned about a particular mole or if you have a number of them, you should undergo a general exam by a physician to determine whether they need to be biopsies. However, if a mole is of cosmetic concern to you, because of its location (i.e., on the face, shaving area, bra line, etc.) it could easily be removed by a minor surgery here at our office .
