Do moles really grow bigger? The boyfriend's theory is that they do. He says- "You don't see young people with wart-like moles, do you?" Fair point.
My mom suggests to have it surgically removed now, while they're still small, so there's less chances of scarring. The prospect of being remembered as the girl with the mole isn't too appealing to me but the prospect of going under the knife is even less appealing.
|"Here lies Mel, she had a mole."|
- Moles are overgrowths of the skin's pigment cells (melanocytes).
- Most moles are not dangerous but if you notice changes in a mole's color, height, size, or shape, you should have a dermatologist evaluate it.
- It is normal to have between 10-40 moles by adulthood.
- Individuals with large numbers of moles (more than 100) are at greater risk of developing melanoma.
