What is there to know about moles?
“Moles (also called nevi or nevus) are small skin growths, usually dark, that develop from the pigment-producing cells of the skin (melanocytes).” – Dr. Denise M. Aaron.
The moles are usually small in size. Some do not even reach two centimeters in diameter. They can be located in the same area of the skin or be scattered at different points and, as Dr. Aaron explains, they can be brown or black.
Although some moles are born and are likely to be inherited from the parents, most appear between the ages of 20 and 30 and can be raised or flat, have hair or not, and appear smooth or rough.
Some fade away on their own as we age. Among the factors that favor the development of moles we can highlight:
- Hormonal fluctuations.
- Sun exposure.
- The genetic.

Are they a health risk?
In general, moles or freckles do not pose a health risk and do not require specific treatment. Except when they start to grow and have other characteristics.
If they change in size, color or shape, we should consult a dermatologist in case they are a sign of other health problems.
Although for many people they are one more part of their skin, for others they constitute an aesthetic problem and, therefore, generate discomfort. This has happened to celebrities like Madonna, Scarlet Johansson and Cindy Crawford, who although she became famous for her mole, was not comfortable with it and ended up taking it off.
