Skin Moles

Skin moles can be categorized into benign and malignant types. Benign moles are typically harmless skin growths that do not require treatment unless for cosmetic reasons. They are usually pink, brown, or tan in colour with distinct borders and can take various forms like freckles, moles, skin tags, and seborrheic keratoses.

These moles can appear at any age, with most individuals developing them in their 20s, peaking in number during their 30s, and decreasing thereafter. Factors influencing mole development include genetic predisposition and exposure to sunlight.

On the other hand, malignant moles, specifically melanomas, are a type of skin cancer that can develop from common moles or atypical moles. Melanomas can progress rapidly and become life-threatening within weeks if left untreated, potentially spreading to other parts of the body.

They are characterized by changes in size, shape, colour, and other features like asymmetry, irregular borders, colour variation, large diameter, and evolving characteristics. Different types of melanomas include acral lentiginous melanoma, nodular melanoma, superficial spreading melanoma, and lentigo malignant melanoma, each with distinct characteristics and growth patterns.
