Mole Removal FAQ in Macon, GA

How can I remove moles from my face permanently at home?

Apply a mixture of baking soda and castor oil on the mole. Apply banana peel over the mole. Use frankincense oil to remove the mole. Apply tea tree oil over the area. Use hydrogen peroxide over the mole. Apply aloe vera to remove the mole.

Can you just cut off a cancerous mole?

Some people are tempted to just cut off a mole at home. This is dangerous, and you should never do it. If your mole has cancerous cells, you may not get all the cancer when you cut the mole, and you may even cause cancer cells to spread.

When should I be concerned about a mole?

Dermatologists recommend that you examine your skin every month. Most moles are benign (non-cancerous). If you notice changes in a mole’s color or appearance, have your mole evaluated by a dermatologist. You also should have moles checked if they bleed, ooze, itch, appear scaly, or become tender or painful.

Do moles grow back?

Mole cells can cause the mole to regrow on the skin into its original shape and size. Do not assume that mole regrowth is a sign of cancer. Noncancerous moles have the same chance of regrowth as cancerous moles do. To prevent a mole from growing back, the entire thing must be removed.

Why am I getting more moles as I get older?

You can also develop moles during childhood and early adulthood. Sun exposure and other drivers behind aging skin can lead to nevi as an older adult. Some moles can become cancerous, but the majority are harmless — this is why it’s important to always get a dermatologist’s take on any moles in question.

Is removing a mole a good idea?

Mole removal can prevent the spread of cancerous and pre-cancerous cells and address your cosmetic concerns in one simple procedure. Results for the majority of patients are permanent, and our patients find that they are able to enjoy life to the fullest after the removal of a noticeable or suspicious mole.

How long can you have a cancerous mole without knowing?

For example, certain types of skin cancer can be diagnosed initially just by visual inspection — though a biopsy is necessary to confirm the diagnosis. But other cancers can form and grow undetected for 10 years or more , as one study found, making diagnosis and treatment that much more difficult.

Is it better to remove moles or leave them?

If you’re wondering if removing moles prevent skin cancer, the answer is no. Cutting out a mole does not mean your cancer is reduced. Precancerous moles may need to be removed to reduce the cause of contracting skin cancer. Although moles are harmless, some people may want to remove their mole for cosmetic reasons.

Can you remove moles by yourself?

Between the cosmetic risks, potential for incorrect removal and very real risk of not properly addressing a dangerous skin cancer, Dr. Sarnoff says trying to remove a mole at home is highly inadvisable. “I would never recommend at-home mole or skin tag removal,” she says.

What happens if mole biopsy is positive?

Generally, after a patient receives positive melanoma results, his or her doctors will need to proceed with staging the malignancy— which essentially means determining the extent of the cancer—and developing a treatment plan based on how far the cancer has progressed.
