How are moles created on our body?
Most of people have more than the ten moles on their skin from birth. Moles are made of special cells that are called melanocytes and that grow clustered, though they are supposed to grow separately. This type of cells gives that dark color of the skin on the place where the mole is. Over time, they grow bigger and darker due to the exposure to sun and UV rays. A great majority of people wants to remove moles and it could be done only after the consultations with a doctor. Nevus is a name for one mole and nevi for multiple moles. The characteristics of normal moles are that their color is pink, light brown, and black. The size can vary from small to large, while their shape can be round or oval. One or more hairs can grow out of a mole and the borders can be irregularly shaped. Abnormal moles are called dysplastic nevi and the size of an abnormal mole is somewhere between 5 and 15 mm in diameter. They can be dark and pink, appearing anywhere on the body, but most frequently on the back, chest buttocks, arms, breast and scalp.

Some of the most common ways in which one can remove a mole are surgery, electrosurgery, cryosurgery, laser surgery, acids and herbal treatment.
