Large green mole on face, on left cheek. Surgery prescribed for removal. How much will surgery cost?

Hi, I have a huge green mole on my face for the past 5 years. I have no idea how I got that when I was 16 yrs. I did not have it from my birth. It does not sprout hair or anything but it is on my left cheek and is pretty visible if I dont wear any make up. I consulted a doctor when it started and he suggested that I should not remove it that time. However, now I want it removed. Can you please suggest the best way to get this done? Also, can you please give me an idea of how much it can cost?

Moles on face are most commonly benign growth and do not pose nay probelm. The best way to take out a mole is by excision of the growth. It is mandatory for any mole to get it histo-pathologically checked for any chance of malignancy potential in it. The cost is quite variable from place to place so you can consult different surgeons according to feasibility.
