Q&A: What would the approximate cost to remove a mole from my upper back?

Ask A Doctor Question: 

Good morning, I have two raised, light coloured moles on my upper back that I would like to have removed. I also have a smaller (raised) mole on my cheek. What would the approximate cost of removal be? Thanks. Jen K.

Hello Jen and thank you for writing in.  Several things factor into mole removal pricing.  First the size of the moles which are measured at your visit.  Whether or not the mole can be removed without stitches is also a determining factor.  Lastly, moles that are on the face usually cost more than moles on the body.  Pricing can therefore vary greatly but usually starts around $125.  I hope this answers your question!
