Medical Dermatology : Moles

Moles are flat or raised spots that can occur almost anywhere on the skin. You can be born with moles or can develop them as a teenager or even as an adult. Moles can sometimes turn into skin cancer and therefore should be watched closely. Awareness of one’s own moles is the key to prevention. Any mole that is changing, growing, itching, bleeding, or feeling strange in any way should be immediately checked by your dermatologist. Moles do not have to be new in order to be changing. If your dermatologist feels that the mole is suspicious, a simple biopsy can be done in the office with a small amount of local numbing medicine.
