Two things to check to see if you need mole removal

January 1, 2010

Moles can potentially develop into a deadly type of skin cancer called melanoma.  There are several warning signs to look out for which can alert you to melanoma.  If you have any of these make sure you talk to a doctor about mole removal, don’t worry about the mole removal cost as your life is more important.

The first thing to check is if your mole is symmetrical or not.  This means if you were to cut your mole in half does each half look similar in size and shape?  If the halves are not similar it’s bad so talk to your doctor about removing moles.

The size of your mole is the second thing you want to check.  Anything over 6mm is bad or a mole that is continually changing in size.  As above, get in contact with you doctor and start discussing removal of moles.
