What are moles?

They are the growth and collection of melanocytes, they can be congenital, but are often acquired. Cause is multifactorial, genetic, sun exposure and immune reaction. We can classify them based on their origin.

  1. Junctional nevus (flat moles)
  2. Compound – dermal and junctional component. (Mixed)
  3. Dermal nevus (raised moles)

Note of caution. Moles can turn cancerous. And this is a problem that does not affect caucasians only. So if your mole has the following characteristics, it is best not to remove them but to investigate further.

  • It has ABCD characteristics (Asymmetry, Border irregularity, Colour variation, Diameter > 6 mm)
  • It is bleeding, crusted or itchy

Treatment:

Options include lightening creams, IPL, Lasers.

Prevention:

Strict sun protection can help, but it is not sufficient to prevent new moles from appearing.

Milia
