Mole Analysis and Removal
Everyone has moles, sometimes 40 or more. Most people think of a mole as a dark brown spot, but moles have a wide range of appearance. Moles can appear anywhere on the skin, alone or in groups. They are usually brown in color and can be various sizes and shapes. The brown color is caused by melanocytes, special cells that produce the pigment melanin.
Our skin cancer screening also includes a thorough evaluation of moles. Again, educating patients on what changes to look for and what are the characteristics of abnormal moles are discussed.
