What are Moles?
Moles are very common and very normal growths on the skin. They come in a wide variety of colors, ranging from shades of brown to pink. Some are flat and some are raised. However, some skin cancers like melanoma can mimic a mole. Changes in your moles including color, size, and shape can be indicative of an abnormal mole or melanoma. If you are concerned with the appearance of your moles or about your moles becoming cancerous, we encourage you to schedule an appointment with one of our expert dermatology providers at your earliest convenience for a thorough mole check.
What Causes Moles?
Moles are either acquired, meaning they appear over time, or congenital, meaning you were born with them. Most moles appear on the skin during childhood and adolescence and will grow as the child grows. Over time, some moles will darken, and others will lighten. While these changes are common during childhood, if they occur during adulthood, it can be a sign of melanoma.
