If you are considering mole removal, there are a few things to understand before going forward. What are moles exactly? Moles are a group of skin cells that cluster together on the surface of the skin. On average, most people have about 30 moles. They may occur anywhere on the body. You may be born with one or more moles and others may appear throughout your life. Generally, these moles are harmless and do not require medical attention. However, they may occur at a place that interferes with your clothing or activities, or they may appear on your face.
A girl may have a mole on the back of her neck, where her necklaces and clothing tend to snag. Or a boy may have a mole on his chin, which causes a problem when he shaves. A mole on the face may be considered to enhance the appearance depending on the location or it may be thought of as unattractive. There are different reasons to have moles removed, and there are a number of methods from which to choose for mole removal.
Moles are classified into two types. A round or oval mole that has uniform color and well-defined borders is termed a normal mole. But if the mole appears to be unusual in any way, this is termed an abnormal mole, which requires an examination by a qualified medical professional to see if it is cancerous. If it is cancerous, surgery may be the only effective method of removal.
Other procedures may be used for mole removal, depending on the situation. For facial moles, it is especially a good idea to see a talented surgeon like Mr. Salerno, as the face is the first thing that people see when they look at you. Regardless of where the mole is located, Mr. Salerno and his team in the Melbourne area are likely to have an effective solution for you.
