Mole Check


Mole CheckA mole is a growth on the skin that develops when pigment cells (melanocytes) grow in clusters. It is commonly seen in adults in the age group between 10 and 40. These moles are generally found on areas exposed to the sun. Moles usually appear till the age of 40 and in older people, they tend to fade away with age.

There is also a rare possibility of moles turning into melanoma (skin cancer). Though, all moles do not necessarily result in cancer, people who have 50 moles or more have an increased chance of developing melanoma. It is completely curable if detected in the early stages. This is only possible by doing regular mole checks.


Yes, it is advisable to consult a doctor if you observe symptoms like colour changes in mole, moles getting unevenly smaller or bigger, changes in shape, skin on the surface becomes dry, mole becomes hard or feels lumpy, itching sensation, bleeding etc.
The only possible way to diagnose melanoma is to remove the tissue and check it for cancer cells. This procedure takes only a few minutes and can be performed in a doctor’s office. The sample will be sent to a pathology lab to diagnose the tissue and check for melanoma.
Limiting exposure to sunlight reduces the chances of developing melanoma because a sunburn means that the skin has been damaged and continued burning increases the chances of causing melanoma. To know more about the diagnosis and treatment, fix an appointment with Dr. Rasya.
