    Are your moles 3D or 2D? (i.e. do they protrude out of your skin, or are they just spots on your skin?)

    dont scratch them off. get it done properly if you want them removed, but dont scratch, you will only end up hurting yourself. i doubt moles come off that easily when you scratch them anyway. get advice from you doc

    Flat is OK. I don't think you should have such a complex if they're flat. Loads of people have flat moles on their bodies. I've got flat moles on my arms too.

    you might trigger cancer if you do. I tried scratching them off because they were annoying, and freckles on my face too. They started to bleed :eek: I was terrified when the doctor told me what i had potentially done.

    it depends, some people get freckled from being in the sun too much, and others are just born with it

    Nothing, people are genetically predisposed to them. Exposure to sunlight is a factor. And as exposure to sunlight is related to skin cancer they can sometimes be lumped in together. But freckles themselves are harmless.

    no freckles are damage caused by the sun, babies are not born with them and you don't get them on skin that has never been exposed to the sun.

    You'd have unsightly scars left instead of the moles, how atractive would that be.

    I'm sure doctors can remove them if they're protruding. My father had one on his face and he tied it off with a string until it shrivelled up and fell off. :eek: But he had to tie it tighter every day.
