MOLES

The majority of the population has at least one mole, but usually as many as 10 to 40 over the entire body. Moles themselves are nothing to be alarmed about, but a mole that changes in texture, color or size should be examined by a dermatologist. Moles that bleed should also be evaluated. At Dermatology Solutions, our medical professionals will evaluate your condition and determine if further action, if any, is required. 

Monitoring moles and other pigmented patches is an important step in detecting skin cancer

Importance of Monitoring your Moles

It is a good idea to conduct a self examination for changes in moles every month, as well as to visit the dermatologist for routine check-ups. Melanoma cancers can develop inside of both congenital and acquired moles. Individuals with more congenital moles, more than 50 total moles or at least four atypical moles are at a higher risk for developing melanoma skin cancer.

Types of Moles

Moles can develop anywhere on your body, including your arms, legs, face, and between your fingers and toes. Moles can also come in different colors, shapes, sizes and textures. 

  • Colors of Moles: Moles are most commonly brown but can also be black, tan, red or blue.
  • Shapes & Sizes: Most moles are round and less than the size of a pencil eraser, however can change overtime. 
  • Textures: Moles can be flat, raised, smooth or wrinkled.
