Skin Mole Beign Inspected By Doctor

Whether you are born with them or they show up later in life, it is important to watch the moles on your skin. Moles are small, hyperpigmented spots on the skin that are generally harmless. Most people have several moles on their bodies, and they can develop anywhere on the body. Moles can be a variety of colors with the most common being brown, black, tan, red, pink, or even blue. While most moles are innocent, it is important to monitor the moles on your skin as an important step in detecting anything worrisome.

Dermatologists have devised a simple acronym to help people keep an eye out for changes in moles that may indicate that something serious is going on. The ABCDE guide below can help you determine if you have a mole that needs to be checked out.

  • A – Asymmetrical shape. A mole in which one half does not look like the other half.
  • B – Border. A mole with an irregular, scalloped, or uneven border.
  • C – Color. A mole that has changed color, is uneven in color, or that does not have a consistent color.
  • D – Diameter. A mole that is larger than ¼ inch, especially if the mole is a new growth.
  • E – Evolving. Moles that evolve (or change) in size, color, shape, or height. Moles may also evolve with new symptoms such as itchiness or bleeding.

This simple guide can help you stay alert to any concerns that you may experience over time. Remember, most moles are harmless – and even some that people worry about often turn out to be merely a nuisance. However, it is always important to have any suspicious mole or spot on your skin checked out by a doctor.

At Medical Dermatology Specialists, we have the expertise you need. If you have a mole that is bothering you, if you have a mole that needs to be removed, or if you have a suspicious mole that needs effective treatment, please call our office today.

Our Patient Reviews

Dr. Weisman was very professional, friendly, and engaged in conversation with terminology I would understand. Her beside manner was, quite frankly, surprising! It was one of the most comfortable visits I've ever experienced with a doctor.
Jeffery D.
Dr. Weisman is a great doctor! She was very informative and personally! Her staff were very welcoming as well I'm glad I found her because she is the only doctor who truly explained what was going with me.
Waquele H.
I truly cannot express how thankful I am for this practice. I have been treated with kindness and immense care by every staff member I have encountered here. The nurses and assistants are beyond attentive and genuinely care for the patient. I have just received a treatment plan from Dr. Laura Biehl, and even if this particular treatment plan doesn't provide me relief, I am confident that Dr. Biehl will work to figure out a solution. She is extremely knowledgeable, listens to patient concerns, and takes time to answer patient questions. Dr. Biehl, and this practice are true gems. If you have any dermatological issues this practice is absolutely the best of the best.
