Moles or nevi come in all shapes and sizes, and can be brown, red, black or skin color. Some people have a collection of moles on their face and/or body, and a lot of them want them removed.
We recommend an annual full body skin check. Patients with a personal or family history of skin cancer, or multiple, or abnormal, moles are particularly encouraged to have a skin cancer screening.” Most moles are benign ( i.e noncancerous) growths of the cells that give the skin color (melanocytes). Some moles can develop into a melanoma, which may occur near or inside an existing mole. If you have a mole that is changing, itching, or bleeding, see a dermatologist immediately.
Moles can be unsightly, especially those that appear on the face or neck, the good news is that there are a multitude of options available to safely remove moles today. Many doctors will do a simple excision, meaning that they will cut the mole out and stitch the skin closed and in most cases can leave a scar which is not attractive.
