Re: Painful Mole
No you are doing the right thing by having it seen to by a doctor. (since you are having it removed, I am presuming the doctor knows about the pain you are experiencing.)
the old adage....when in doubt take it out.... and that goes for all moles that have CHANGED meaning shape, colour, any changes should be checked out by a qualified doctor.
An ingrown hair is just that ingrown and if it is within a mole, all the fiddling you do to it, makes it worse. You sure do not want to get an infection. Let the doctor look after it, it is good that you have seen and doctor and have made arrangments for its removal...when will the biopsy be?
