which is worse: a dark mole or a scar? (photo)

I have a non-cancerous flat mole on my face. I know that by removing it I would be replacing the mole will a scar but which would look a bit better?

A scar always looks better than a big dark mole.

The resultant scar from a mole removal almost always looks better than a big dark mole on the face. Moles are easy to remove and almost painless. Sincerely, David Hansen,MD
