Moles, or nevi, are pigmented lesions on the skin. They occur on sun exposed skin, but may also be found on areas such as the scalp or soles of the feet. Some moles may transform into melanoma, so it is important to monitor your moles and have them checked regularly by a Dermatologist. This risk is higher if you have an extensive sun exposure history or use a tanning bed. If you would like a comprehensive total body skin exam, or if you are concerned about a changing pigmented lesion, please contact our office and one of our Dermatologists will assist you.
