If you have been wanting to remove your moles or warts because you don’t like the way they look or feel, there is a safe way to do so. Moles are the most common skin growths that can appear anywhere on your body. They are usually formed before the age of 20. A study reported that most people have about 10 to 40 moles somewhere on their skin. These moles are usually harmless and benign unless they vary greatly in size, shape and color. Otherwise, removal won’t be necessary unless it bothers you.
You should definitely see a doctor if your mole has changed its size, shape, colour or if it scabs over. This is a sign of melanoma, or skin cancer, and in which case getting your mole checked and removed could save your life.
