Mole Removal Treatment in Dubai

Moles are locally raised or flat collection of brown or black pigments under the skin. Most moles are small and appear by the age of 20, although some may appear later in life. Generally, moles are harmless, but a change in shape, size, colour or texture may give rise to the suspicion of cancerous growth. Sun exposure may play a role in the development of moles.

Moles or Nevi are frequently removed for a variety of reasons, like their odd-looking appearance or risk of developing skin cancer, which can be very dangerous. But only the very large nevi (giant nevi has a tendency to develop skin cancer).In general, larger the size of the moles, greater is their tendency to develop cancer.

Use the American Academy of Dermatology’s ABCDEs as a guide for assessing whether or not a mole may be becoming cancerous:

Asymmetry: Half a mole does not match the other half in size, shape or colour.

Border: The edges of moles are irregular, scalloped, or poorly defined.

Diameter: The mole is usually greater than 6 mm when diagnosed, but may also be smaller.

Evolving: A mole or skin lesion that is different from the rest, or changes in size, shape, or colour.

Colour: The mole is not the same colour throughout.
