What is a mole? A mole is a small coloured spot, or growth, on the surface of the skin that develops when the skin’s pigment cells grow in clusters, instead of spreading themselves out evenly. Moles can be brown, skin-coloured, black or even have a blue appearance and can be raised or flat. Moles occur when cells, called melanocytes, grow clustered together, rather than spreading evenly throughout the skin. Melanocytes produce the pigment in our skin that gives it colour. One of the most common causes of skin moles is UV light; skin with greater exposure to the sun tends to have an increased number of moles. Exposure to the sun, hormonal changes during puberty and pregnancy can all cause moles to darken. WHAT ARE MY OPTIONS FOR MOLE REMOVAL LONDON?
