There are many types of skin growths such as moles, seborrheic keratoses, and sebaceous hyperplasia papules (enlarged oil glands) that are typically harmless. Moles are formed by groupings of pigment cells (melanocytes), and can exist since birth or develop later in life. They can be raised or flat, and range from skin color to very dark brown or black. It’s important to examine your skin regularly to look for any changes in the color, texture, or appearance of any moles or other skin growths. If you note a change, have a concern, or are interested in a cosmetic improvement such as mole removal in greater Boston, visit the experienced professionals at SkinCare Physicians.
