I cut off my own mole with an exacto knife, worst that could happen?
I discovered a relatively new mole on me, its a few years old, maybe 3 or so. It was irritating me that it just appeared, so i cut it off. It was a bit painful, but i got it. I have another mole, i haven't touched it, even though its bigger, but thats because i've had it my whole life. So whats the worst that can happen from cutting off my own mole. Keep in mind a sterilized knife using rubbing alcohol. Some people say you shouldn't cut off your own mole. lol answer 3. doctors are widely available in canada. Just hate going to em.

Probably what you cut off was a skin tag. Moles are not usually raised up enough to cut it off. You have to cut it OUT. Its not a good idea to do this, as the other poster said, infections are certainly an issue. We scratch off skin tags with no problems, but, if it is a large noticeable area you might regret doing that. Another thing. If this is new, and an unusual shape, Melanoma is always a possibility ,that is why doctors send this type of tissue to the pathologist to make sure it is not cancer. You can be any age to get skin cancer. Next time, see the doctor, it takes seconds to remove them, and you don't have all the crap to deal with later.

Weird that you live somewhere where they have the internet but no doctors. The worst that could happen is you could get an infection and die. Nothing serious.

Well more than likely, if it doesn't get infected, nothing bad will happen. However, there are some "bad" things that can happen when you do stuff like this that you should be aware of: 1) The mole can come back. 2) You can give yourself a "keloidal" scar (especially if you're Black)...look it up on wikipedia. It's a pretty nasty looking thing. 3) It can get badly infected I don't recommend that you remove your own moles.

Well, you may get a localized infection, or an ugly scar. The thing with having the doctor cut off the moles is that they send them to the lab to see if they really are moles, and not a cancerous or pre-cancerous lesion.
