Guide by Dr. Brian Evans for Removing Cancerous Moles

Moles are only "accessories" for most women, spicing up the appearance of the body and adding some charm to a woman's look. However, if you are the lucky "carrier" of one or more moles, you should also know that they require your attention from time to time because they are very sensitive. Inadvertently or as a result of an aggressive treatment, they can result into serious problems, including skin cancer.

In most cases moles appear on the body for genetic reasons, being inherited after birth. The natural history of moles shows that they occur during the first three years of life, puberty and rarely after 30 years. Their number decreases after age 40-50 years. Their appearance is normally in the form of patches with variable edge and color, which can be yellow, brown, black and even blue.

If you feel like your skin is spotted by moles, you should know that this condition is normal and you should not worry too much about it. This phenomenon includes moles in areas that are normally less common for them, such as genitals, breasts, buttocks, legs, breasts and even scalp.

Regardless of their pleasant aspect, some moles are characterized by a predisposition to become malignant in time, causing diseases such as sin cancer. On the other hand, this does not mean that you will automatically be exposed to risks, but you will have to pay great attention to some warning signs. A mole is dangerous and should be treated by a special surgery procedure in the following situations:

  • it is constantly increasing in surface and depth; 
  • it changes the look over time; 
  • spontaneous bleeding sometimes occurs from the area of the moles; 
  • the area is very itchy.

If you notice any of these symptoms, you should get in touch with a dermatologist, who will guide you to a professional surgeon for undergoing a special intervention. The mole removal treatment involves the surgical excision of the mole as soon as it looks suspicious. We all know that the idea of surgery is not very pleasant at first sight, but you should also know that mole removal is one of the quickest interventions and does not pose any risk.

Finally, if you want to make sure that your moles will never impose surgery do not forget to use protective cream when going to the beach. Always choose high quality products and make sure you use enough, especially if your skin is light.
