Moles present as we age. They can appear because of age, sun exposure, genetics, or a variety of skin health factors. They can also change. Dr. Oldham encourages his patients to be vigilant about their skin’s health. This includes watching carefully for changes. Typical, benign skin lesions present in round, symmetrical shapes and can have color or pigmentation, but do not always. Skin lesions is a term used to describe a wide range of skin growths including moles, age spots, sun spots, warts, skin tags, and even cysts. We should all be aware of pigmented skin lesions as these are the most common skin lesion to evolve into pre-cancerous or malignant status. If you notice any significant changes in size (typical moles are about the size of a pencil eraser), shape (benign pigmented lesions are symmetrical and usually have clean borders), or color (skin lesions can be non-pigmented or pigmented but should not darken, crust, or bleed) give Dr. Oldham a call.
