Mole Removal for sun-kissed patients of Dr. Roger J. Oldham Bethesda, Maryland

Dr. Roger J. Oldham, a board-certified plastic surgeon, is concerned about his patients' overexposure of sun.  Patients seeking mole removal may have been dealing with moles or lesions or sun spots or freckles that have changed appearance recently.  Dr. Roger J. Oldham’s plastic surgery practice in Bethesda and Dr. Oldham’s Bethesda Surgery Center is an outpatient surgery center within the office of Dr. Roger J.  Oldham, cosmetic and reconstructive surgeon, specializing in mole removal.

Have you learned your ABCs? Chances are, if you’re reading this, you know that Dr. Oldham is not referring to the alphabet.  The American Cancer society has developed a catchy, easy-to-remember acronym for keeping an eye on moles, some of which have been with us since birth, and some have been developing because of our time in the sun: A=Asymmetry: One half of the pigmented lesion should look like the other half. B=Border:  The border should be smooth and even. C=Color:  The color should be an even tan or brown, without color variation. D=Diameter:  The diameter of the lesion should not change over a few months and should be approximately the size of a pencil eraser. E=Evolving:  The lesion should not undergo any significant change in color, size or shape. If you see these changes in your lesions, make an appointment with Dr. Roger J. Oldham for mole removal.
