All moles should be scanned and recorded by your family doctor every year. That will ensure that any subtle changes are picked up in time. Any moles that are changing shape, size or color should be removed for investigation. This can be done by your family doctor if they are comfortable with it, otherwise a dermatologist will remove it for you. Consult a plastic surgeon if the mole is in a cosmetically visible position, such as the face or chest, as they are trained in the most delicate wound closure techniques and will leave the smallest scars.
