What kind of mole is this, and what is the best way to remove it? (photo)

I have been having this since i was born, but it was tiny as i get older it become large and more obvious on the surface. It is not itching. Is it safe to remove this type of mole with laser in order to avoid of having a scar?

I suggest seeing a cosmetic dermatologist for a formal evaluation. This can be improved or removed with lasers, radiowave or shave. See an expert to minimize scarring and use silicone gel with growth factors as part of your aftercare. Best, Dr. Emer.
