Changes in Moles

By Team TNV

Moles are small dark spots found on the skin. Most people have moles and in fact, some are born with them.

Most moles aren't really something to worry about due to their harmless nature. They sometimes add to a person's beauty, hence the name beauty spots.

Although certain changes in mole are normal, some other kind of changes may be a cause for concern.

They may disappear, fade or even get thicker as one ages. During pregnancy, moles may get slightly darker and all these are normal changes.

Children and young adults, when exposed to sunlight, may also experience an increase in mole growth.

When a mole begins to have more than two colours, special attention needs to be given.

If you notice that your mole is beginning to bleed, itch, or swell, you should go for a check-up.
