Moles can be completely harmless and have no real function or use but rarely they can change or new ones form. In these instances it is always important to get changing moles checked with your doctor just to ensure there is no suspicious or worrying signs of skin cancer.

Where do moles occur?

Skin moles on the body are common. They can irritate and get larger as we age and often catch on clothing and bras as well as rub in areas such as the armpits and between the legs.

New moles can keep appearing as we get older and this can be normal however you must look out any changes in size shape and color particularly dark brown or black.

How moles can be removed?

There are numerous ways to remove moles from the skin which are simple, cheap and effective and almost leave no scar. The simplest dermatology procedure is to freeze them off however in most cases mole removal surgery or laser mole removal is required.

We advise against home remedies or creams that enable you to remove the moles by yourself as this can often cause worse scarring and potentially you could mistreat a skin cancer.
