Say Good-bye to Moles
Many people refer to a mole as any dark spot or irregularity in the skin.
Some people are born with moles. Other moles appear later in life. Sun exposure seems to play a role in the development of moles and may even play a role in the development of atypical, or dysplastic, moles.
The role of heredity cannot be overemphasized. Many families have a type of mole known as dysplastic (atypical), which can be associated with a higher frequency of melanoma.
Depending on the depth of the mole and the type of cosmetic outcome desired, moles are removed in different ways.
