Is it possible to remove brown birth mark on caruncle of left eye?

Hello, I was born with something on my caruncle on my left eye. It s brownish/ black and it covers the pink part... It looks like a mole. I wanna get rid of it. That s only on my left eye, the right eye is normal. I wanna know if I can go to surgery for it and take it out?

Thanks for asking at Healthcare Magic. I read your question and I understand your concern.
It's Nevus. if you are very much concerned regarding its cosmetic purpose then laser therapy is best for its removal. There is very rare chance of malignant transformation
Hope it helps best
