A dermatologist can often tell whether a spot is a mole. Most moles do not require treatment but can be removed if it:
- Bothers a patient (rubs against clothing, etc.)
- Appears unattractive to a patient
- Could be skin cancer
What People Say About Us!
"I have been going to Dermatology Center of Loudoun for years. They have always taken good care of me. I have referred several friends and family. I specifically have seen Jane Nguyen. She has always answered all my questions and calmed my concerns. Very professional, thorough, and compassionate."
We can remove a mole safely and easily during 1-2 office visits via surgical excision or shave. If there is any suspicion that a mole contains cancer, it will be examined under a microscope (biopsy).
