Whether you want to remove your unwanted mole or are bothered by its change in size and color,
you need to consult our mole specialists your concern
Moles are dark, flesh-colored growths that occur when pigment forming cells are produced in a cluster. While most are benign, moles that become raised or change color over time can be early indicators of a dangerous form of skin cancer called melanoma.
Our dermatologists can remove unwanted moles throughout your body as well as monitor the appearance of existing moles to detect cancer in it’s earliest stages.
Although moles are usually harmless, they can turn into the most dangerous form of skin cancer: melanoma.
Melanoma develops when melanocytes start to grow out of control. As a result, cells in nearly any part of the body can become cancer, and can spread to other areas of the body.
Melanoma is much less common than some other types of skin cancer. Melanoma is more dangerous because it’s much more likely to spread to other parts of the body if not caught and treated early.
