Evaluating and Treating Moles

The team at Associates in Dermatology will start with evaluation before proceeding to mole removal. Most adults have between 10 and 40 common moles, which are  usually smaller than about 1/4 inch.

You should make an appointment if you notice a new mole or notice any of the following changes in a common mole:

Mole Prevention

There are many things you can do to help limit the development of moles and the main complication of moles — melanoma.

Watch for changes

It's smart to become familiar with the location and pattern of your moles, so you can stay ahead of any complications. Regularly examine your skin to look for changes that may signal melanoma. You can perform your own head-to-toe check, including your scalp, palms and fingernails, armpits, chest, legs, and your feet, as well as the soles and the spaces between the toes. Ask your dermatologist about your risk factors for melanoma and whether you need a professional skin exam on a routine basis.

Protect your skin

You can take measures to protect your skin from ultraviolet (UV) radiation, such as from the sun or tanning beds. UV radiation has been linked to increased melanoma risk. And children who haven't been protected from sun exposure tend to develop more moles.
