Moles Are Common
Most people have between 10 and 40 moles on their body ,and most times benign (non-cancerous). Moles, raised or flat, are areas of pigmented skin that are black or brown. Most moles are harmless and do not require treatment, but a person may want to remove a mole for personal or cosmetic reasons. When moles are surgically removed, they normally do not return.
Besides moles, there are a number of common benign skin lesions that many clients may want evaluated. These include epidermal cysts, flesh-colored bumps around the eyes (known as sebaceous hyperplasia or syringomas), shiny red bumps on the face and body (known as cherry angiomas), and firm brown bumps on the legs and arms (known as dermatofibromas). These may be removed for cosmetic reasons.
