Yes

It certainly can be removed. I would suggest a deep shave biopsy as these often leave less noticeable scars then a straight line closure technique. The only time this may not be the case is if the mole touches the lip border. Then sometimes a straight line scar can look better. Hope that helps. Adam Goodwin

Yes, this can easily be removed in the office. I would suggest finding a board certified plastic surgeon to remove this mole.
