Mole Removal

What is a Mole?

Moles are a common type of skin growth, which is often dark in color. Moles can be caused by clusters of pigmented cells. Moles come in a variety of colors, shapes and sizes. They develop all over your body, and can appear both on adults or kids. Most people have 10-40 moles, some which will change or disappear over time. Moles are usually harmless, but sometimes they might be cancerous. It’s important to know if your mole changes appearance or grows quickly and to tell your doctor about it as soon as possible so he can diagnose you with skin cancer like malignant melanoma sooner rather than later.
