Eye and Vision Care
Black Mole on the White Part of my Eye
My docotor says this is not malignant but i want it removed How can i accomplish that?
I recommend scheduling an appointment with your eye care provider. Your eye care provider may then be able to refer you to a surgeon who would determine whether you would be a good candidate for possible excision.
Your questions about the testing results you've been given or the risks, benefits, and alternatives for proposed treatments of this condition need to be directed to your treating physician(s). You should insist that they answer these questions in a way that you are able to understand before consenting to any treatment.
