What are Moles?

Moles are pigmented clusters of skin cells. Instead of the cells spreading out over the skin, they form in one area, which gives them a darker pigmentation and sometimes a raised appearance. Common moles are generally harmless and don’t need to be removed or treated, but it’s important to recognize when a mole is atypical.

Atypical moles have a higher risk of developing into malignant cells. Seeing a dermatologist regularly can help you keep tabs on any atypical moles that may require attention. If any of your moles are changing in shape, size, or color or developing symptoms, you should see your dermatologist to have it evaluated as quickly as you can.

TREATING MOLES

HOW CAN I PREVENT MOLES?

During your visit, your Levy Dermatology provider may perform a biopsy of the mole to determine if the mole is cancerous. If a mole is benign and not causing any issues, you do not need to treat the mole. Should there be any concerns, however, the mole can easily be removed. Your Levy Dermatology Provider will numb the area around the blemish, and the mole will be cut out along with an area of the surrounding skin.

Some moles may just appear genetically, but minimizing sun exposure can prevent existing moles from becoming cancerous and the formation of more moles. Our providers can give you tips on ways to protect your skin and any benign moles you may have.
