Moles are small, melanin containing patches on the skin. They are produced by special cells called melanocytes. Moles are a skin disorder and can be removed for cosmetic or medical reasons after a mole screening. Many techniques are available for mole removal. The selection of the technique depends on the size,location and type of mole. Most commonly an unsightly mole is removed with a scalpel and the small incision is closed with one or two stitches by a dermatologist or plastic surgeon. Some moles are removed by freezing them with liquid nitrogen. If the mole is suspected to be malignant it will need to be excised with a wider margin of healthy tissue, which will require analysis in the laboratory.
