Moles are very common lesions in the skin of children and adults alike. The majority of them are not dangerous but some have the potential to turn into melanoma (a form of skin cancer). We have various options ranging from lasers to surgical removal of moles. Depending on the clinical evaluation of these lesions, best done by a board certified dermatologist, such as Dr. Omar Ibrahimi, a treatment plan can be developed. If a mole is worrisome enough that a dermatologist is worried by it, insurance will usually cover the treatment of it, whereas if it is a benign (not cancerous) appearing lesion, the treatment will usually not be covered by insurance.
