I just had a mole removed above my eye about a month ago. They cut it out, and yes I do have a small scar, but it is better than having a big mole petruding from my head that was getting bigger over the years, but I am in my 20s so I was able to make the decision myself. They also numbed it before they done the precedure, it was a shot that hurt like heck. I also got three stitches that I had to wear for about a week. Well I hope I have been some help. Keep us posted on what you decide to do.
