The growths on skin in question are regarded as the tiny-pigmented tumors that are comprised of nevus cells groups, which have in them melanin. Melanin is more commonly known as the pigment of the skin. As far as the moles themselves are concerned, they can be of different color – brown, yellow, black, and even purple, and also of different size and shape, i.e. small, flat, raised, smooth, hairy or even resemble warts. The variety that occurs right from the birth of a person is known as birthmark. In specific cases, these small growths do have the tendency to become malignant and cause a condition referred to as melanoma, i.e. extremely serious in nature variety of cancer affecting the person’s skin. In addition, one important fact that should not be overlooked is that, in case a mole is growing faster than usual and becomes darker in the process, this may be an indicator that the mole in question has malignant properties and thus ought to be removed as soon as possible.
However, the spot that is considered to be the most preferred location for melanoma is the leg area. Another very important fact is that those melanomas that suffer daily irritation due to tight clothes or accessories have a much greater tendency to progress into the malignant phase. But one indicator that provides relief is the hair growing from the mole itself. Why? Because this is actually an accepted rule for determining the nature of a mole.
Fairer complexion, more concern
Those people who are of fairer skin tone become more easily overexposed to the sun, which means that their skin is affected to a greater extent since sunburns are more common occurrence. But with changes due to the direct effects of the sun, the structure and the nature of the moles changes as well. Therefore, making the regular use of protective solutions is an absolute must.
Moles can also be classified according to the level of their pigmentation, i.e. we can encounter pigmented as well as non-pigmented moles. In the case of former, their color ranges anywhere from light to black, and those moles that are closer to being black, and also a bit more prominent and rough to the touch, might actually be a variety of the melanoma.
