The enigmatic mole
Few things are as universally enigmatic as the common perception of skin moles. Gather a group of people together and you will also have collected every impression regarding moles. To some, a mole on the face is an envied mark of beauty, to others it is an unsightly blemish that should be removed. Some folklore believe them to be sign of fortune, while in other cultures, people with prominent moles are not to be trusted. The most current debate regarding moles is whether they are benign (non-cancerous) or whether they are a common link to skin cancer. We will help clear up the medical facts regarding moles, but you can be sure that personal perceptions surrounding beauty and fortune will go on until the end of time.
Cosmetic mole removal
- Moles that are determined by your doctor to be suspicious for a melanoma will naturally be removed.
- Some people who tolerated their mole at one point in their life, may find that the mole has grown, changed, or become too prominent for their liking, if your dermatologist determines that a mole is benign, she or he can remove the mole for cosmetic reasons. In most cases, your insurance will not cover the removal of moles for cosmetic reasons.
