How are moles formed?


The exact origin of moles is unknown. In most cases, it’s believed to be a mixture of genetic conditions and sun exposure. Moles appear in infancy and puberty, and their size and colour change as you get older. When the hormone levels shift, such as during pregnancy, new moles are normal.

The majority of moles have a diameter of less than 1/4 inch. The color of a mole can vary from pink to dark brown or black. They can appear everywhere on your body, in groups or alone.

Almost any mole is harmless (noncancerous). Adults, on the other hand, are more likely than children to develop cancerous moles. When a new mole grows as you get older, or if an existing mole varies in shape, visit a dermatologist to ensure it isn’t cancerous.
how are moles formed?

Congenital moles are moles that appear at birth.

Birthmarks are moles that come in a variety of sizes, shapes, and colors. A congenital mole affects 0.2 to 2.1 percent of all children. When an infant is older, say, 10 to 12 years old and more able to handle local anesthetic, certain birthmarks can be handled for aesthetic purposes. There are several treatment services available, including:

  • Electrocautery
  • Top skin layers are shaved (surgical excision).
  • Laser ablation for lightening organic peel for lightening (CO2 Laser)

Adults with bigger congenital moles are more likely to develop cancer (4 to 6 percent lifetime risk). A doctor should be contacted if a birthmark varies in scale, colour, form, or discomfort.
