    Moles

    Moles are usual and normal skin changes.

    They often look like small dark brown spots. They are formed by the association of clusters of pigment cells. Moles usually appear in childhood and adolescence. Most people have 10 to 45 moles, almost all of which appear before the age of 40. They can occur on all parts of the body, neck, arms, legs, torso and head. Some moles may fade and disappear over a lifetime. The number of moles  are  influenced by genetic predispositions and the frequency of exposure to UV rays.

    Typically, a mole is a brown spot on the skin. However, they can be of different colors, shapes, sizes and textures. The characteristics of the mole can change during life.

    Most of the moles are harmless. Rarely, they become cancerous lesions.

    Monitoring of moles and other pigment changes is an important step in detecting skin cancer, especially malignant melanoma.

    The removal of moles, especially those which have undergone changes, is recommended. Moles are removed for medical, aesthetic and practical reasons.

    All reasons are justified provided that the intervention is carried out correctly.

    Removal of moles is recommended when they are in places that are exposed to irritation, if they have changed shape and color, if they are injured, if they have jagged edges and colorful pigmentation, if they bleed, hurt or itch.

    At the Mirabiliss Polyclinic, moles are surgically removed using local anesthesia. The intervention is painless and comfortable for the patient. After removing the moles, the sample is sent for histopathological examination in order to ensure the health safety of the patient and determine the correct diagnosis.

    It is recommended that moles be examined by a plastic surgeon or dermatologist once a year. Thus, one can intervene in time if a malignant change occurs.
