Most moles are harmless and won’t require treatment or removal over the course of your lifetime. However, it’s important to be aware that melanoma, a type of skin cancer otherwise, can grow in or near a mole. When caught early, melanoma is highly treatable. Early indications might include a change to an existing mole or the appearance of a new mole.
If you have a mole that looks concerning to you, or has changed in size, shape, or color, Dr. Walker can properly assess if the mole needs a biopsy or not. This isn’t something to diagnose for yourself or by looking. Call Kristin Walker M.D. today, and we’ll schedule your consultation. We can help assess and remove any questionable moles.
