Where Do Moles Come From?
Moles are much more common in people with fair skin, and generally develop during the first 30 years of life. Pregnancy can often bring about darker moles, which may make them seem more numerous. Generally speaking, your likelihood of having moles is genetic.
When Should A Mole Be Removed?
The vast majority of moles are not dangerous to your health, and so treatment on the NHS is quite rare unless a mole shows signs of disease - usually the symptoms involve changes in size or shape, itching, bleeding or cracking of the mole.
If you're concerned about your moles you should see your GP, or one of our dermatologists.
However, many people with large or prominent moles prefer to have mole removal, especially if the mole is on the face or other very visible areas.
How Is Mole Removal Performed?
Moles can be removed in a number of ways, including a shave excision (removal with a scalpel under local anaesthetic) or hyfrecation (passing a painless electrical current through the mole.)
