Is it dangerous to burn the moles off? Would burning the moles leave a scar?? Can it be healed?

Thank you for your question. Moles should not be burned off. You want to get them done by shave excision and that way you can send the specimen for testing. Best of luck!

Thank you for your question. Moles should be removed by shave excision or surgical excision. All moles that are removed should be sent to a dermatopathologist for evaluation. I would recommend seeing a board certified dermatologist/dermatologic surgeon for any mole removal(s).
