I've removed 5 moles by myself, one of them came back uglier and bigger and darker, 2 got much much lighter and smaller, 1 is still scabby and hasn't healed yet, so we'll see, and the last one has not reappeared since I took care of it about a year and a half ago, but a new one appeared about 3 inches away from it. Although, to be fair, melanoma runs in my family like crazy and I should know better than to mess with them myself. If it's at all irregular or if you have risk factors, taking care of them yourself could be dangerous. Sometimes moles can be pre-cancerous and if you mess with them it can stimulate the cells as its trying to heal and...you don't really wanna stimulate pre-cancerous cells. I don't take my own advice though, so....do what you want and don't die.
