Many of these are normal, but some may be suspicious for skin cancer. The ABCDE’s of melanoma are important to watch out for: Asymmetry, Border irregularity, Color variability, Diameter larger than a pencil eraser, and Evolution (or change over time.)
Benign moles may sometimes become bothersome due to irritation or tenderness. Clothing or hair brushing may irritate moles located in the underarms or on the scalp. There are multiple methods for removal best discussed in person; these range from superficial shave removals to excisions using deep and superficial sutures.
Depending on the lesion or location, stitches may or may not be necessary. Following standard of care protocols, all removed moles are submitted for analysis to rule out the possibility of skin cancer. Doctors provide a thorough examination of moles, comprehensive discussion and efficient treatment. Depending on the size and location of a mole, it may be possible to remove the lesion on the same visit as the initial consultation.
