There are many different factors that can cause skin moles. Common ones include hormones, genetics, and sun exposure. If you have skin moles you may want to learn more about typical causes of skin moles and what you can do to prevent more of them.
Everyone has variations in their genetics. This means you can expect to find certain areas of your body numb or pink because melanocytes, which are the cells in the skin that produce pigment, are present. Most of the time however, these pigments will be present in all the skin areas that are zapped by the sun.
Melanin is what the skin produces in response to the ultraviolet rays of the sun. The negative effects of exposure to the sun can be seen by people who have a high pigmentation, or the skin becomes tan in response to the negative effects of the sun. Some people are more prone to developing skin moles than others.
These are some of the typical causes of skin moles:
• Imbalance of hormones, such as during pregnancy, adolescence and the use of birth control pills• genetics that make certain people more likely to develop skin moles or other forms of hyperpigmentation.• Having an increased exposure to direct sunlight, such as sitting in a backyard for a long period of time during the summer.• Breathing salts that are made from the alkaline salts of the earth can be absorbed into your skin and can develop skin moles.
The above are just some of the more common types of the skin problem. If you have seen your skin moles change color, size or shape, you should see a physician to rule out the possibility of skin cancer.
Even if you don’t have skin cancer, having a repetitive mole on your skin can still be uncomfortable and embarrassing. There is nothing worse than someone muttering, “Oh, nice try, Joes.” In addition to avoiding people with a history of skin cancer, getting it removed is a practical (and satisfying) way to get rid of a nuisance.
The cost of having your mole removed totally depends on the mole and the doctor that you choose. Mole removal at a professional level, such as a dermatologist, requires more than $200 per surgery according to the American Society of Dermatologists. This price can be absorbed by the individual physician, who typically receives a one-time payment for each mole removed.
If you have a benign mole, you can choose to have it removed with a home remedy. Many people have found success with at home alternative medicine applications such as apple cider vinegar, tea tree oil and other similar treatments. Such remedies may require more than a day or two to complete, but for many people these non-invasive treatments have proven to be effective.
If your mole is benign and does not penetrate beyond the surface of the skin, you do not have to worry about it being life threatening. Infection is a risk, but it typically disappears after a visit to the dermatologist. However, if your mole is on your face and the change in its appearance is drastic (such as from sun exposure or age), you may want to consider a stay of treatments until you can be assured your mole is in a relatively safe state.
By the end of your consultation, you should be aware of the wide variety of methods that medical professionals use to eliminate skin moles. Many times the techniques used are not the same as what the general public applies. Therefore, while the medical community may use techniques that your doctor finds more effective, the procedures used may be drastically different from what you prefer.
After your consultation, you should be able to talk about your options with your doctor. By asking plenty of questions and understanding the results that go into deciding the treatment type, you should be able to make a decision regarding your skin mole removal procedure with confidence. However, keep in mind that even after your treatment, the level of risk should remain.
