What is a mole? Why do people have them removed? How can you ensure that your mole removal experience is quick and simple? We’re about to give you all the information you need about modern mole removal procedures.

What Is a Mole?

A mole is a cluster of cells that are heavily pigmented. Sometimes moles are flat, but many are raised above the surface of the skin. The majority of moles are harmless. So why do people sometimes have them removed, even surgically?

Reasons to Remove a Mole

Some moles have to be removed. Again, most are harmless. However, on occasion a mole may develop into a malignant melanoma. In suchmole removal cases, the mole often becomes mottled in color, and the borders of the mole may be poorly defined.

Other people have moles removed for cosmetic reasons. The location, shape, or color of the mole may make a person feel self-conscious. Mole removal is a fast and effective way to restore self-esteem.

Sometimes people have moles removed because the location leads to irritation. For example, a person may have a mole on a part of the body that is frequently rubbed the wrong way by clothing or a favorite piece of jewelry. In such cases, removing the mole can relieve the irritation and allow a person to continue to dress and groom in a particular manner.
