DIFFERENT TYPES OF MOLE

Everyone has moles (nevi). Some of them are present from birth, while others appear soon after birth. These are called congenital moles.

The moles that appear subsequently are called acquired moles. Some people only have a few moles, while others have hundreds. Moles appear throughout life up to the age of 50–60, after which the appearance of new moles declines. The number of moles is determined by a person’s genes.


WHEN IS IT TIME TO HAVE A MOLE EXAMINED?

Many skin changes are completely harmless, but it is a good idea to have a specialist look at them in order to be completely certain. In the following cases, it is an especially good idea to book a consultation:

  • A change in the skin that looks like a mole
  • An existing mole changes colour or begins to grow in part
  • Itching, burning, peeling and pain are changes that are suspicious
  • Moles that clearly differ from your other moles or if the mole is in an unfavourable place and is subject to chafing from clothing

Please note that during the consultation the specialist conducts an examination of moles, but that an appointment to have any of them removed usually needs to be made separately after the examination.

Please call our plastic surgery nurse on 09 1620 630 for more information.
