All About Moles
Moles are common skin growths that can appear anywhere on the body. They are usually brown or black in color and can be flat or raised. Moles are typically round or oval-shaped and can range in size from tiny dots to larger than a pencil eraser. Most people have at least a few moles, and they are generally harmless. Moles are caused by the clustering of pigment cells in the skin, and they can develop at any age.
Some people are born with moles, while others develop them later in life. Moles can also change in appearance, with some becoming darker or larger. While most moles are harmless, some can indicate skin cancer. It's essential to monitor your moles and watch for any changes. If you notice any changes in the size, shape, or color of a mole, or if it starts to bleed or itch, it's important to have it checked by a dermatologist.
