What is mole? 

Skin lesions that occur when cells that make melanin, which gives the skin its color, appear on the skin are called moles. They can be congenital, as well as occur with the effect of ultraviolet rays depending on the genetic structure. They can be light brown, black, dark brown, red, colorless and sometimes even blue in color. 

Which Moles Should Be Removed? 

The first thing to know is that moles on the face and body should be examined by a physician. Although they are benign lesions, moles can change over time and turn into cancer cells. Early diagnosis of cancer is of great importance. For this reason, people with moles on their body should definitely ensure that moles are examined regularly. Apart from this, sometimes the need for pathological examination may arise in moles. In this case, moles should be removed. We can list these changes as follows:

  • Asymmetrical appearance,
  • irregularity on the edges,
  • unusual color,
  • crusting on it,
  • bleeding, itching,
  • redness around it,
  • hair growth,

if any of these changes occur in moles on the face or body, the mole should be removed immediately and sent for pathological examination. 

Which moles are dangerous? 

While talking about the possibility of a mole turning into cancer, I would like to state that the following criteria are important symptoms for us

. - Moles that occur in people with light skin and colored eyes

- Changes in the color, size, borders of an existing mole, bleeding

- Brown-black moles with irregular borders larger than 6 mm

- Lightening in the color of a brown-black mole

- Moles that are frequently traumatized by factors such as rubbing or shaving

-Blue – black – dark brown colored moles

-Family history of skin cancer (melanoma) 

Recovery Process… 

Although mole removal is a surgical procedure, it does not require surgery. However, a very small incision is required to remove the nevus tissue from the body. It is not possible for the person to feel pain or ache during the procedure. Because before the intervention, local anesthesia is applied to the area to be treated. Then the mole is removed by making an incision with a scalpel. Generally, no stitches are required after the procedure. However, in some patients, sutures may be required after removal of the nevus tissue, as the mole covers a large area. In this case, dressing will also be required. When the procedure is completed, patients can continue their daily life and go to work immediately. Removal does not require clinical rest. 

Is mole treatment (removal of mole) performed for aesthetic purposes?

There are moles that are not in danger of turning into cancer, but that only cause problems in appearance. Of course, these moles can be removed with local anesthesia for aesthetic purposes. After this removal process, almost no scars remain. However, the procedure must be performed by a specialist Plastic Surgeon and the post-procedure recommendations must be followed. 

How to diagnose harmful/harmless mole?

It is examined visually or with a dermatoscope. The decision is made whether to remove the mole or take a biopsy. Although mole removal is a risk, early removal is an important step in the treatment of the disease.
