Moles on the body: what is it
A mole is a kind of tumor. It does not grow - this is its main difference from other types of tumors. The ensemble of cells of the birthmark is responsible for the pigmentation of our skin, that is, for our tan.
Birthmarks appear immediately after birth insoon. On much less often they appear at birth. In an especially large number of moles appear during adolescence. There are a lot of different kinds of moles. They can be brown, red, blue, purple; they can be flat and flush with the skin, they can protrude above the surface of the skin, and can still be on the skin tissue under the surface.
For reasons of appearance, it is common to divide moles into two types.
- Vascular birthmarks. They are formed as a result of an abnormal accumulation of blood vessels (capillaries) that go beyond the surface of the skin. Their appearance is associated with vascular changes in the structure of the skin. It is rare to find vascular birthmarks at birth. They are more common among women than among men. Basically, such birthmarks are removed and treated with a medical laser, steroid injections, and surgical excision.
- The second kind of moles is pigmented moles. Unlike vascular birthmarks, they consist of groups of cells that are pigmented. Why do birthmarks of this species appear? Their existence is considered an anomaly. The main role in the formation of pigmented moles belongs to melanin. It's a pigment. Such birthmarks are considered skin lesions. It is necessary to closely monitor them, as their damage can lead to the formation of a cancerous tumor or melanoma disease. Doctors around the world do not advise removing moles. The fact is that a mole is a kind of tumor. It does not grow - this is its main difference from other types of tumors. If you remove a birthmark or for some reason violate its integrity, then the process of forming a real tumor is started. It is called melanoma. This type of tumor is very dangerous due to the fact that it grows very quickly and passes into a phase of metastasis. The ensemble of cells of the birthmark is responsible for the pigmentation of our skin, that is, for our tan. If a part of these cells enters the blood, then the above melanoma occurs. Many people, sharing their experience, say that in their case everything ended well. That is, when they ripped off the birthmark, a new one grew on this place and everything passed. It also happens. But in any case, damage to the birthmark can bring a lot of trouble on your head. If you have a mole on your body, consult your doctor.
