Common Signs of An Atypical Mole

When it comes to developing melanoma, most atypical and normal moles on skin don’t pose a risk to you. However, sometimes clients come in asking about a “weird mole” that is large, uneven in color and/or jagged around the edges. Suspicious moles that raise some red flags and that could require a skin and mole check up include the following characteristics:  
  • Your mole seems uneven in color or has recently changed color 
  • You have noticed a jagged-edged or irregular-shaped mole 
  • You have A LOT of moles 
  • Your moles have been appearing in areas usually exposed to the sun 
  • You have large moles (bigger than a pencil eraser) 
  • You may have said recently, “My mole is growing!” 
One or multiple of these signs are reason enough to get a mole screening.  After the screening, if necessary, getting a mole removed will be a quick and efficient process with our dermatologists.  Dr. James and Dr. Maughan are experienced in mole removal and treatment. After thoroughly screening for potential mildly or severely atypical nevus and hearing your concerns and thoughts, our dermatologists will choose the best mole removal procedure for you.
