i was recently looking at my vagina and i fount and small mole near the hole. it's not bothering me or anything but i just dont want it there. it really like any other mole that some people might have on their face or neck, but i was just wondering can you really grow moles on your vagina? what do you think it can be and how can i remove it? because i having a urge to use a nail clipper and clip it off.

thank you much.

Oh lord, don't clip it off. That's just asking for a nasty infection or keloids.

Instead, next time you see a doctor for a pelvic exam, point out the mole. Ask about removing it (yes, they can grow there, and yes they can be removed safely). It's good to remove moles in odd places because you really don't want it to turn into a malignancy where you can't see it.

The doctor can remove the mole with a quick surgery (either with a surgical blade, or with an electric needle). But be prepared to wear really loose underwear because it's going to need recovery time.
