Way to go Rambo!

Seriously. Do you have medical training? If you do, OK then...

I mean, I am Mr. DIY but wow, just wow.

I had a mole removed about 10 years ago. It was on my face and was horrible - almost the size of a pencil eraser. I'd hated it my whole life. I paid a dermatologist $200 to remove it. They used a local anesthetic and simply sliced it off. Didn't hurt a bit and took only a few days to heal. (I generally heal quickly though.) I kept a bandaid over it. I'm so happy I had it removed. Now my kids have moles, and I always tell them that I will take them to have them removed if they ever want them gone. So far, they don't seem to care, but I so wish someone in my life when I was a child would have offered to help me have mine removed. I got teased and bullied all the time because of the stupid mole I had, it was awful.

I do... I've taken down many moles with machine guns...
It's really not that bad.

He told me we wants to have it removed. Although I can see why, as it is impacting his self esteem, I am really worried that he will end up with a scar. Any info you can share in this regard?

Thanks!
Hi there !
I know having a mole could be quite embarrassing, but you must tell your son not to lose hope.
Hmmmm. I once had a mole like his, growing hairs in it, and I find it very disgusting. Some of my friends are even teasing me because of that dark mole I had. I can't bare the pain of being teased by people around me for having such a mole. So, I find it very very sad, I always thought of having it removed thru laser or surgery, but I cost too much,. I would risk anything just to have it removed.

Go see a Dermatologist. They'll take it right off.

Wow! That is totally amazing, but does it give you scars? Hmmmm. Why does your kids don't want to? They don't have to miss that opportunity, hehehe. Me either, i am always teased by everyone for having such a mole. Hope that when they tease me, they'll have one too. Hahaha lol

Probably about $100-$200. Most dermatologists will also include testing the mole to make sure it's just a normal mole and not something worse.
