Moles on Skin

I am African American and my dad has moles, so of course I get them. But how can I get rid of them without having marks?

Moles on Skin

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)

Moles on Skin

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)

Moles on Skin

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)
