Hi XXXXXXX
Thanks for writing to us
A Skin colored mole could be
1. Dermal melanocytic nevi ( completely benign)
2. Molluscum contagiosum
3. Viral wart

These lesions can easily be treated by electro cautery of the lesion.

Though you have sent us an image, it is not if clear resolution.
If possible send us another clear resolution image of shoulder and breast area in which the lesion is clearly visible.

However for all practical purposes a dermal nevi does not warrant removal as its benign.

Hope that helped.
Take care

Hi,
I thought a nurse had seen the lesion as you had mentioned it in your previous post. Anyways as a doctor has seen the lesion and has said its benign and safe then there is nothing to worry.
Regards
