Moles (nevi) are natural growths of human skin composed of pigmented cells (melanocytes). They can be small, large, single or grouped. Moles can appear anywhere on the skin in a variety of shapes, sizes, textures and colours. Majority of these moles are benign while some maybe pre-cancerous.
Acquired Moles – are moles that appear over time during childhood or early adult life, possibly caused by sun exposure, pregnancy or certain steroid drugs.
Atypical Moles – are irregularly shaped with indistinct borders, usually larger than common moles, with often with a variety of colours. While atypical moles are considered to be potential risks of melanoma, most of them actually never become cancerous. Atypical moles should have their moles checked regularly, and protect the moles from sun exposure using sunscreen and clothing.
Congenital Moles – this is a type of melanocytic nevus that are present in infants.
Skin Tags are considered as a small flap of skin that hangs off the skin surface. They generally appear on the neck, armpits, upper trunk and body folds.The ideal course of treatment truly depends on the type of skin tag or mole and can only be decided once the mole is inspected during a consultation.
