Should I remove my mole at home? 


Moles usually develop at childhood, but can keep developing until the age of 40. Most adults have anywhere between 10 to 40 moles on their bodies. Some patients decide to remove their mole because of the pain and discomfort it can cause in their everyday life. Other patients decide to remove their mole for cosmetic reasons. Whatever your reason may be, you deserve a mole removal treatment that is safe, effective, and scar-less. So, what treatment is that? 

There has been a lot of controversy in the past as to how one should remove their mole. Removing moles at home can be dangerous. At home treatments can often lead to infections and severe scarring or may not be effective at all. There are several home remedies and treatment options that can be found online. These popular treatments can range from burning the mole off with apple cider vinegar or cutting off the mole with scissors or a razor blade. There are even mole removal creams that can be found at pharmacies. These treatments can be tempting because they sound easy and convenient. However, it is important to note that most of these methods aren’t proven to be effective nor safe. Removing your mole at home can also be dangerous due to the fact that you don’t know if your mole is cancerous or not. A mole can turn into melanoma. If it is left untreated, it can spread throughout the body. Each mole is different in size, shape, and location. Hence, each mole should be treated individually and with the highest care.
