Mole is medically known as nevi and they are basically a group of pigmented cells that are seen on the skin like black or brown spots. There are different types of moles. While most moles are harmless, there are a few that could be cosmetically unattractive or very rarely may become cancerous. They can appear on any part of the body and by the time you reach adulthood, you could have about 10-40 moles, as per a study. With age, some of the moles disappear and few others change in color or may grow in size.
A mole is formed when a group of cells called melanocytes come together and grow in a cluster at a particular location on the body. They may be flat or protruding. They are of different types such as congenital moles (formed at birth), Acquired moles (which appear later in life). However, if moles begin to become sore or start itching or bleeding or rapidly increase the size or if there is asymmetry, it is advisable to consult a dermatologist.
