Moles are usually benign (non-cancerous) patches of skin cells containing a brown or almost black pigment. Benign moles could be flat or raiser, large or small, smooth or hairy and often there is no medical reason for their removal. However if one decides to undergo a procedure, the mole would be surgically removed. In most cases it is wise to send them to a laboratory for further examination.
A small proportion of moles can be cancerous (malignant melanoma) and is a serious type of cancer. Should we believe in a possibility of you having this cancer, we will immediately refer you to the specialist.
