In many cases, moles are not dangerous, just annoying. However, moles that occur after the age of thirty or those that look different from existing moles may be cancerous. Moles are formed by cells called melanocytes; they can appear alone or in clusters. For most adults, it is quite normal to have between ten and forty moles by adulthood.
You can have your moles removed if you do not like their appearance or if they pose a risk to your health. They can cause discomfort when they rub against clothing or are caught in your jewelry. The basic mole removal procedure is a minor surgery that involves snipping off the affected skin tags, which sometimes may require to be stitched depending on how deep the incisions are.
