First, moles need to be evaluated to see if they pose a significant health concern. Many times they are benign, but the incidence of skin cancer from moles continues to increase each year so if you have a history of sunburns or chronic sun exposure it is usually best to get the moles checked at least once a year. However, if a particular mole is bothering you for any reason or you believe it could be cancerous please contact us to schedule an immediate consultation and discuss your options.
Please pay attention to any changes in a mole, such as:
- Color change, especially darkening
- Increase in size or an increasingly irregular appearance
- Itchiness or pain
- Spontaneously bleeding
