Absolutely ages ago, I had two black moles removed from my vulvar area. My doctor suggested removing them as a "precaution" and that comment scared me (I was young at the time.) She told me she had yet to remove one that was found to be malignant. I don't know if she was telling me the truth or trying to calm my fears (something I think most of my doctors must do since I go nuts when the least little thing goes wrong with my health!) Anyway, they were easily removed with by the 'punch biopsy' method, there was little post-removal discomfort, and the results came back benign. Please consider having the thing removed so you can be done with worrying about it.
