I can tell you what not to do. I went to a dermatologist who lasered mine off. Yes, they are gone, however they left equally offensive white marks. The same thing happened to my sister. Not my idea of a great solution. (08/30/2006)

Because moles can be cancerous, I do think you should see a dermatologist, but I think I would want an African-American dermatologist. Just guessing, but with skin color important, it seems to me a specialist with the same type skin/color would have specialized even more. Also, with the propensity of scarring (keloid) with African American skin, that specialist dermatologist would be more aware and should do a tip top job. Just an opinion from an RN of 29 years.
Good luck. (08/30/2006)
Take no chances and don't scratch them, because they can turn cancerous and not heal but rather spread. They are likely virus by nature. God bless you. (09/05/2006)
