Similar problems like birthmarks, hemangiomas and keratoses may also appear as unwanted spots. Here are some of the ways to remove a mole without surgery.  Image Courtesy: Getty


While surgery is the most recommended and effective way to remove moles, it still leaves scars. Usually such a surgery involves either excision with cauterization or excision with stitches. Both ways involve removal of moles using a blade and may not be an easy option for many. Image Courtesy: Getty
