I agree with the other physicians--a trained dermatologist of plastic surgeon can easily remove the lesion for you. Good luck!

Removing moles on the neck

I frequently remove moles on the neck without any problems what-so-ever. If the mole overlies a main artery or vein, it just requires a little extra care but there should not be any increased risk.

The risk of a major occurrence while removing a mole is zero to nil in the right hands. Choose your surgeon that you can trust
