What is a mole?
A mole is an area of highly pigmented or flesh colored skin that may be present at birth or develop over time. There are several different types of moles which may be seen by a dermatologist. They include:
- Congenital nevi
- Dysplastic nevi
- Intradermal nevi
- Junctional nevi
Some of these moles may develop into cancerous areas of skin over time, which is why it is important for patients to visit a dermatologist at least once a year for an annual skin cancer screening. Skin cancer screenings should be done to check for changes in moles or other skin tags or growths which may indicate the presence of cancer. However, many patients seek mole removal for cosmetic purposes.
At Dr. W Dermatology, we provide three primary methods of removal for moles, which include:
- Shave removal
Which form of mole removal is right for me?
Determining which type of mole removal is appropriate for a patient depends greatly on the type of mole present and where it is located on the body. This is best decided with the help of our professionals during a consultation appointment.
