What Are Moles?
Moles, also known as nevi, are clusters of melanocytes (cells that produce the pigment melanin) on the skin. They can vary in size, shape, and color but are usually small and dark brown. They can appear anywhere on the body, and the average person has between 10 and 45 moles. Moles can develop, change, or even disappear due to hormonal changes during adolescence, pregnancy, or with age. It is not unusual for these changes to occur.
Moles & Melanoma
Moles are typically benign, but in rare cases, they can develop into a type of skin cancer called melanoma. It’s important to have any new or changing moles examined by a dermatologist to check for abnormal characteristics, such as asymmetry, uneven color, or irregular borders. If caught early, melanoma is highly treatable, but if left untreated, it can be life-threatening. Regular mole check-ups and self-examinations can ensure timely treatment.
