Just curious does this require a special doctor to do this? I have a few I'd like to get rid of one on my neck that people tend to hit when they cut my hair, use the electric razors on back and YIKES!!! then 2 on the right of my neck.

I see this crap called Bio-T sounds like its a bit phony though?

not sure if this is expensive to do? I know my insurance covers like 80%

It's not expensive if your insurance covers it. Just see your family doctor or general practitioner about removal. You have to be careful though, my sister had two removed by request and her insurance carrier considered it a cosmetic surgery to improve appearance??? And they refused payment for the surgery.

You could always go to a Dermatologist, they should be able to code it so the insurance will pay for it. I've had many removed, usually just a short office visit. Plus they send them out to test for cancer sells just to make sure.

I'm a young guy (still) and already had 3 or 4 suspicious moles removed, mainly the upper body, which doesn't have that many. I went to a dermatologist and 1 was removed with irregular shape that came out perfectly normal even with the assymetrical shape but not radically assymetrical. They used very small needle to numb the surrounding area which was extremely painful because they keep the needle in move it around a little omg it hurt and I'm not afraid of needles. I had one on my upper arm surgically cut out and like a pound of flesh!!! Came out non melenoma but potential to grow into skin cancer. Then I had one on the same arm near my arm pit punched out and one of my back punched out that came back fine. Trust me you will want the shots to numb the mole and you feel absolutely positively nothing. Right now, I stay out of the sun mostly. And I have a check up every 6 months which I'm doing very well.

Dermatologists will definitely do it.

Some family practitioners will do it. Some won't.

General surgeons will do it.

Agree, though, just make sure they code it in a way that it doesn't come off looking like it was just for cosmetic purposes.

My GP did a few on my back in my mid 20's......just froze them with liquid nitrogen, a week/10 days later all gone and all healed up.

One of them did return (he warned me it could happen), but not nearly as large as it was.

That is a thing a GP should not be doing. The chances of problems are high. See a specialist.

if you are worried about doc bills and

if it's smaller then a pea, just buy that wart-removal stuff and freeze it off. then enjoy it as a tasty frozen treat.



What color is it? is it the same color as your surrounding skin, or is it darker? Does it have any hair?

Have a dog smell it. if the dog starts chewing on it, then you might want a doc to check it out...

if it isn't getting larger, changing color, or chaning texture, have yer doc look at it during yer next physical...

I'd just freeze it off, though. doesn't hurt too much.

ABC's for Moles: MOLE WARNING SIGNS (THE ABC'S)

The "ABCD" rule and Melanoma Danger Signs

Finding melanoma early is the key to curing this vicious cancer. Learn the ABCD mnemonic for recognizing moles and growths that might be cancerous. Though most (if not all) of your "suspicious" moles will turn out to be normal non-cancerous moles, it is much better to be safe than to not see, or ignore, an early melanoma. Be sure to review how to do a monthly skin examination to properly look for abnormal growths.
If your mole or growth has one or more of the ABCDEs, you should show it to your physician as soon as possible! http://tinyurl.com/p5gzj
