Mole removal Orlando is performed for non-cancerous or cancerous moles. While the majority of moles are non-harmful and non-cancerous, eliminated for cosmetic or functional concerns. Moles are common skin lesions types- some are birthmarks, skin tags, and freckles. The dermatology team offers skin lesions treatments and mole removal in Orlando.
Moles, also known as nevi, are mainly categorized into three main types: congenital moles, common moles, and atypical moles. As mentioned above, majorly moles are harmless and benign. In some cases, a mole can be pre-cancerous, which means, it may develop into a cancerous growth later. For some moles, biopsy is required, if they are cancerous or not. Once the mole is found as a pre-cancerous or cancerous mole, mole excision may be required to ensure proper skin care.
Congenital moles are moles present by birth or develop shortly after birth. These moles are benign and are not dangerous. If there is a large group of congenital moles or an excessively large mole, then people with this mole type may be at a slightly higher risk of developing skin cancer later in life. In such cases, routine skin cancer screenings and self-evaluations are recommended. If these moles are found at early stages, you can undergo mole removal Orlando to avoid any cancerous growth.
Common moles are also known as acquired moles. The majority of people naturally develop small moles throughout life. Acquired moles are mostly junctional moles, intradermal moles, and compound moles. Mostly these moles are non-cancerous and have a very low probability of getting skin cancer. Get skin cancer screenings annually to maintain proper skin health.
Atypical moles are also known by the name dysplastic moles, as the name implies, are irregular to look. The majority of atypical moles are often benign. Usually, atypical or irregular moles may be a sign of skin cancer. Get skin cancer screenings to keep your skin healthy and better understand the mole type- suspicious or potentially dangerous. If a mole is asymmetric and features irregular borders with dark color, then it is a suspicious mole, and you require Mole Removal Orlando for it. Additionally, a mole greater than 6 millimeters in diameter or a mole that changes shape, size, or color can be potentially dangerous and a sign of cancer.
