Perhaps the biggest danger of these DIY kits is that you could be putting your life at risk by removing something potentially life-threatening that would have normally been analyzed at the lab. "If someone comes to see me when they've already removed the mole, they've essentially disposed of the evidence," dermatologist Dr. Manu Mehra told the Daily Mail. "There's absolutely no way of telling whether the mole was dangerous or benign. In a worst-case scenario, it is possible that a cancer could metastasize, creating a terminal secondary tumor that could have been avoided if the initial cancer had been identified and treated," he added. Of course, the labeling on these products will recommend that you see a doctor if you find a suspicious-looking mole, but tell me what you think. Do you have any experience with these DIY treatments? Would you ever give them a try, or do the risks far outweigh the temptation to remove them yourself?
