Ihave pigmentation on my cheek.and I would like to get surgical remove.the pigment is the of a quater- Flora
I am having a little difficulty understanding the extent of the pigmentation. In general, pigmented lesions are of most concern when there is a change in size, which could suggest melanoma. I would urge you to have the lesion evaluated. The recommended method of removal would depend on the nature of the lesion.
