A mole occurs when skin cells grow in clusters rather than all throughout the skin, and in many cases, they appear darker than the skin surrounding them. The vast majority of moles are completely benign, but in some cases, they can become cancerous. Some studies suggest that people who have more moles, as well as those who tend to develop moles more frequently, maybe at a greater risk of skin cancer. Premier Dermatology provides professional mole monitoring services designed to help catch skin cancer early, which is the most important step in skin cancer treatment.
Mole monitoring incorporates the use of photography, measurement, and documentation over time to track the growth, number, and appearance of moles. Anyone who is at an increased risk of skin cancer due to sun exposure, family history, and other factors should contact Premier Dermatology to learn more or to schedule their first appointment.
