Atypical Mole Awareness

Although moles are extremely common and usually safe, it is important to keep an eye on them. Atypical moles are unusual looking moles with unusual characteristics. It is important to keep an eye on your atypical moles because they are an increased risk factor for developing skin cancer. Atypical moles can develop anywhere on the body. They can be flat or raised, irregularly shaped, and dark colored. It is important to try and minimize sun exposure as much as possible, especially if you have an atypical mole. Sun exposure is a factor that can increase your atypical mole to develop into something more dangerous, such as skin cancer. Better safe than sorry, right?
