Other Aesthetic Issues | Moles

 

Moles are growths on the skin that are usually brown or black; they may be located, alone or in groups, anywhere on the body. A birthmark is a colored mark that appears soon after a baby’s birth. Although many moles and birthmarks are completely benign and pose no health risk, some people choose to remove them because they consider them unattractive. Regularly using a strong sunscreen, and monitoring birthmarks and moles for changes, is highly recommended.

There are many types of moles and birthmarks, including the following:

  • Congenital mole (dark and irregularly shaped)
  • Atypical mole (irregular color and undefined borders)
  • Cafe-au-lait spot (light-brown patch)
  • Mongolian spot (flat, bluish and irregularly shaped)
  • Hemangioma (reddish-purple patch or raised dots)
  • Salmon patch (reddish patch, usually on the upper eyelid)
  • Port-wine stain (dark red and flat)
