Re: Mole Removal - Methods and effects
Depending on how deep or big it is, you may or may not need stitches as Velius mentioned. I just had two moles removed 2 weeks ago tomorrow. I had one removed from my back and it was not very deep. In fact, it was so shallow (if that is a way to describe it) that it didn't even bleed. On the other hand, the one I had removed from my leg was rather deep and, while my doctor didn't stitch it, it was deep enough that it could have been stitched and, I am guessing that the only reason it wasn't was because he wanted to leave it open in case more had to be removed later. That one bled quite a bit for about 3 days. Anyway, the shot wasn't great but, less painful than a bee sting and I felt a small pinch when they were being removed. Nothing to get too torked about.
The mole on your chin sounds kind of like the one I have on the right side of my chin. It is nothing to be concerned about but, if it is causing you issues with shaving, you might see your derm and let him or her know that it isn't a cosmetic issue so much as a practical issue. I don't know if derms are in the habit of removing a blemish for reasons other than biopsy. If you are cutting it, it may becomre more of a problem down the road so, the best I can suggest is that you have a frank discussion with your derm. I can't remember if you have seen your derm yet and if so, what he or she recommended for you. But, if you haven't seen one, that would be my next step.
Take care and keep in touch.
