Lesion on the Nose

Thank you for your question.  The lesion on the nose looks normal.  If you desire to have it removed for cosmetic reasons there are several options.  A biopsy of the mole could remove the majority of the visual appearance of the mole.  However, the mole would be replaced with a scar.  Most of the time the scar is not noticeable but there is no guarantee.  Another treatment option would be a laser treatment.  It would likely take more than one treatment but it could lighten the color of the lesion.  I wish you the best!
