If the diagnosis is certain to be a mole (nevocellular nevus), the excision of a mole for the cosmetic reason is not covered by Japanese Health Insurance. One excision up to 4 mm costs 10,000 yen (plus tax) with round excision and ointment dressing. We recommend excision and suture if the lesion is 5 mm or larger. The excision and suture method costs 20,000 yen (plus tax) for the one of up to 5 mm in sun-exposed areas (head, face, neck, forearm, lower leg, hand, and foot) with 4,000 yen for each additional mm beyond 5mm. It is 15,000 yen (plus tax) for the one of up to 5 mm in non sun-exposed areas with 3,000 yen for each additional mm beyond 5mm.
