Most procedures are performed under local anesthesia to minimize discomfort. Surgical excision, for example, may generate a slight sensation of pressure, but it shouldn't be painful.

Cryotherapy and laser removal often cause a temporary burning sensation.

In any case, it is essential to follow the instructions of the healthcare professional and contact them if you experience any unusual discomfort.

Mole removal carries potential risks, which can include infection, scarring, changes in skin pigmentation, or recurrence of the mole.

However, these risks are significantly minimized when the procedure is performed by an experienced professional and aftercare guidelines are followed.

It is essential that a proper evaluation is performed to determine if a mole is suspicious for cancer before opting for removal.

While some mole removal treatments can also be used for warts, it's important to recognize that warts and moles are different lesions.
