Skin Growths May Be Dangerous
Skin discolorations and growths such as moles are commonplace for many people. For some, however, moles pose not just a physical disadvantage, but also a health risk.
Moles often show up during early childhood or adolescence and are typically harmless. Usually, they appear as a cluster of cells that look brown or black, sometimes raised in appearance. While many moles are harmless, some moles may be an indication of skin cancer.
Protect Yourself against Malignant Moles
A developing mole, or one that has existed since childhood, is often considered to be a normal anomaly on the skin. Most patients often disregard these. However, the development of new moles may be a sign of skin cancer or some other serious medical condition. As a result, it’s important to allow the medical professionals at Addison Internal Medicine to inspect and treat any moles you find.
Signs That You Should Consider Mole Removal:
- Your mole changes shape.
- Your mole changes color.
- Your mole grows in size.
- You experience pain associated with your mole.
- You develop more moles on your body or near an existing mole.
- Your notice abnormal hair growth near a mole.
