A mole is a common, usually non-cancerous lesion on the skin. These skin lesions vary in colour, size, location, and texture. Some may appear tiny, light-coloured, and flat, others may be big, raised, dark, and hairy. However, in some instances, moles can be unsightly raised lumps and they can be life-threatening as well.
Moles are usually non-medical issues but more of a cosmetic concern. While some moles taint an individual’s overall appearance, others can develop and become cancerous as a person matures. Thus, most people opt to have these moles removed.
