Multiple treatment options available; see description please

Detailed Answer:
Hello

thank you for the answers. I have gone through them. Purpose of the questions was to rule out any sign of infection. The procedures range from surgery, cauterization, laser treatment or freezing technique for mole removal. I would suggest you to visit hospital and get an appointment for a "Consultant Dermatologist" specialized in laser therapy. He will examine the site first and then will discuss all the possible therapy options. You can then chose accordingly.

Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help if not then don't forget to close the discussion and rate it.
Wishing you good health !!
