Who to see to have a mole removed
Derm Surgeons are the docs to see for mole removals.
Mole Removal by Nose
Moles are the domain of the dermatologist. From the photo it appears a shave removal would be sufficient for removal and also to confirm pathology. Please find a board certified dermatologist for the best cosmetic results.
