I hate this mole on my upper lip, it bothers me when i eat or drink something hot, looks ugly too. Is this something insurance will cover ? if not how much will it cost in CA with biopsy test? Looks Ok to remove? Thank you in advance.

Facial mole removels are quite easy and affordable.

Removing facial moles are easy and almost painless. Cost is $85 for the visit and roughly $350 for each excision on smaller moles as an average.

Mole removal from vermillion border

Any surgery on the vermillion border requires a very exacting eye or a permanent step is likely to occur.
Whether or not your insurance will cover the procedure depends on the individual insurance policy and the individual doctor's policies.
