Q&A: What type of doctor would help with a mole removal?

Ask A Doctor Question: 

already had one mole removed , melanoma, had another scraped, not normal and has to be removed, deep, is there such a thing as a mole doctor in the dermatologist field that does it all at once, not having to send off to lab and redo.

Dear Cindy,
The dermatologist probably made the decision to first shave the mole in order to yield a superior aesthetic result.  Had the mole been completely safe, no further treatment would have been needed and you would have been saved stitches and the resulting linear scar.
