Extirpation is the best cure. We are then able to remove anymolesonthesame day in most cases, and then organizepathologicalexaminationunder the microscope with a report. We arealso able toremove moles byspecial techniques on the basis ofaesthetic andplastic surgery.

On the diagnosis, we use the dermatoscope (an illuminated hand-heldlens withmagnification) for ruling out the malignancies.
