What is a mole?

A mole is a skin growth that can appear in different forms, sizes and colours. Many people throughout life will have a mole or multiple moles on their body, however some can be more noticeable than others. You can be born with a mole or it can develop over time at any stage of your life.  Whilst they are typically benign they can be a sign of something more serious, so they should always be monitored for any changes in size or shape.

The reasons for wanting a mole removal can vary per individual whether that’s for cosmetic or medical reasons.
