Hello to all those who chanced upon this article via Googling for "mole removal Singapore" - you've come to the right place. I've had plenty of paranoid friends ask me to check on their moles recently - so I thought I'd write a little about it.
Personally, if I was really worried about a mole, I'd definitely go to a dermatologist. Reason? Even doctors themselves often have a hard time differentiating between normal-looking moles and scary ones. It takes years of accumulated experience for a doctor to confidently say "that's definitely not a mole I'd be worried about" when someone's life is at stake.
I went through a paranoid stage myself when I thought a bruise on my big toe nail might turn out to be a melanoma (a type of very aggressive skin cancer), and this was after I became a doctor.
Below are five important facts everyone needs to know about when it comes to moles, with some information on how to go about removing your mole in Singapore at the end.
