Moles that begin crusting or scabbing can be an indicating factor for melanoma. A scabbing mole may be especially worrisome if it is also bleeding and/or painful. Other factors such as size, shape, color, or itching, can also be used to determine the severity of the mole.

Can dark flat moles be removed?

Dark flat moles can be removed by Laser. Depending on the size of the mole, Laser mole removal may not remove the mole all at once. So, it may take more than one session to remove the mole.

How can I speed up up the healing?
