There are three common skin cancers. Basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma are the two most common. They are found in the upper layers of the skin. They are highly preventable and highly curable although they can be disfiguring if left too long. The third most serious skin cancer is Melanoma. It too can be curable when caught early, but has the potential to be deadly when not. Some melanomas are found in the upper layers of the skin, but many are more invasive and found in deeper layers.
No one is immune from getting a skin cancer, though some are at greater risk.

There are many types of moles, but I’ll discuss benign (non cancerous) moles that protrude from the skin only. If a mole is sticking out, looks funny, you don’t like its location, it’s irrttitating or is unsightly, then you may consider removing it. There basically are two different techniques to remove this type of mole.
