Should I be worried when be new moles appear?

Also, one accidentally was Lasered during hair removal and turned write. Should I worry?

Most moles on the skin will be completely harmless so don't worry. However, it is important that any new, changing or symptomatic mole gets assessed by your GP. "If in doubt, check it out".

It is very unlikely that a small mole that incidentally got removed via laser treatment will be a problem, but we always recommend getting a specialist to check your skin before any such treatment to ensure it is safe for you.
