Can I cut off my own mole?

I have a mole that has grown under my arm pit. It has not changed colour or spread out at all it has simply grown longer. It is about 2-3mm diameter at it's base and sticks out about 12mm (half inch) and is quite floppy. It doesn't hurt and is usually not uncomfortable in any way but I just don't want it there.

Can I simply just cut it off myself without any real problem?

Re: Can I cut off my own mole?

"NO", do not cut a mole off yourself. Be sure and see a doctor for proper diagnosis.

If a doctor has diagnosed it as a skin tag, and it is a tiny one, sometimes a doctor will tell you whether you can remove it yourself or not.

Be on the safe side and have it properly diagnosed. Usually a dermatologist is the one to see.
