Should I go to a doctor for my mole and petechiae? (photos)

When in Doubt, get a consultation--Mole removal: lasers, radiowave, shave
I suggest seeing a cosmetic dermatologist for a formal evaluation. This can be removed again with lasers, radiowave or shave. See an expert for minimal scarring. Best, Dr. Emer
Thank you for your question. If you have a changing mole it is a good idea to have it evaluated by your doctor, dermatologist or plastic surgeon. A small biopsy can be done to determine the type of mole and if it is dangerous. If the entire mole is removed it should still be sent off for pathology to determine the type of mole and that it was entirely removed.
