Treatments for cancers and moles

Almost everyone has some moles on their body, and people with fair skin usually have more than dark-skinned people. This is perfectly normal and usually nothing to worry about, but certain factors can indicate that a melanoma – a type of skin cancer – can be growing in or near a mole. You should seek advice if you’re worried, and especially if a mole has recently changed shape, is not symmetrical, has recently appeared, is more than one colour or has an irregular shaped border. Taking your family to regular mole checks is like regularly visiting your dentist, and it can save your life.
