Keep an Eye on Your Moles

Moles are extremely common, and most people have at least one. Many adults can have around 10 to 40 moles, which is completely normal. What isn’t normal are issues like discoloration or bleeding moles. You should be sure that if you do have moles, you’re checking your body on a regular basis for signs of skin cancer. Dr. Marc Meulener, your dermatologist at Choice Dermatology in Parlin, Union, and Basking Ridge, NJ, and serving Morristown, NJ, can help you understand what you should be looking for as you examine your moles.

What to Look for When Checking Moles

You don’t need to be checking moles on a daily basis, but it is helpful to check at least once a month. You should be checking all areas of your body and keeping tabs on each mole. If you start noticing issues like multiple new moles popping up, you should see your dermatologist in Parlin, Union, and Basking Ridge, NJ, and serving Morristown, NJ, for an examination as soon as possible.

When you’re able to identify issues in a mole and get that checked out, it becomes easier to treat the possible skin cancer and you’ll have less to worry about. You should be checking for moles that are discolored, bleeding, have uneven edges and borders, and are significantly larger than other moles. If your dermatologist confirms that the mole has issues, they can perform a quick biopsy and make sure that you’re not dealing with skin cancer. You should also be sure that you’re taking the proper precautions to protect your skin for the future.
