    mole removed by excision

    Hey,

    On wednesday I am supposd to be going in for a mole removal on the right side (its covered by my beard) close to my right ear.

    Now, before doing everything i consulted a derma. and he said that u wudnt have to worri about scarring since it (the mole) is in an area where scarring isn't realli a problem. I then went to a plastic surgeon, who btw willl be doing the surgery, and he told me that you will be doing an exchange, the mole for a scar. the scar he said would be about an inch long and stitches would be removed after 5 days. I assume taht means its gonna be removed by excision.

    I mean im realli scared, shud i go ahead with da surgery, ne advice? specially from someone who was in the same position as me plz give some advice, I suffered much depression due to this mole.

    thanks
