    What do you want removed? Hair? A tatoo? A scar? There are different techniques and prices for each.

    A mole? And you want to fork out hundreds for it to be removed by a laser?

    A false economy. Cryotherapy is probably the most appropriate answer.

    Available on the NHS, you can have a mole frozen off with 1 or 2 treatments of Liquid Nitrogen to the mole. It heals completely leaving no mark in about 2 weeks. And best of all, your GP can perform the process for free.

    Contact your GP for more information or alternatively take a look at this page
    http://www.emedicine.com/derm/topic553.htm

    Don't worry too much about the stuff to do with cancer etc - Cryotherapy is a very useful procedure that can help treat a wide range of problems.

    I've had it done and all it does is tingle a little and after about an hour it swelled up and then the swelling went down as the mole died and evenually fell off.

    But my moles aren't that raised. So they don't protrude, plus if its on the NHS surely it has to be a suspicious mole?

    Hmm... I see your point. You wouldn't be able to play the "Its catching on my clothes" card if they weren't raised very much. However, if the mole is causing you irritation you should be able to get it removed on the NHS... it doesn't have to be a malignant tumour for them to get of their arses and do something with this. I had a benign lump that was formerly a mole but got inflamed and went a bit manky. It was no risk to my health but it was certainly irritating because it sat nicely on my collar line and was therefore aggravated by my clothing.

    Where abouts is the mole and is it for cosmetic reasons that you want it removing?
