Patient :About three years ago I had surgery on my shoulder to remove a raised birthmark and some surrounding skin due to the possibility of cancerous properties. I still have a suture in my shoulder and was wondering about the pros and cons to having it removed and left in my shoulder despite the lack of pain.
Symptoms: No symptoms. Just a black thread visible under the skin
