Mole Cancers – Pictures of moles and malignant melanoma

Mole cancers are usually malignant melanoma and are the deadliest type of skin cancer. Cancerous moles are highly curable if detected in the early stages.

Not everybody has skin moles, so some may ask the question…

What is a mole?

The medical term used is a melanocytic nevus. Melanocytes are the skins color cells and a nevus is a discolored or pigmented spot on the skin.

Some infants are born with a mole or birthmark. As children grow they can start developing moles before the age of 10. During puberty and the teen age years they can develop more according to the amount of sun exposure they have.

The higher the number of moles you develop, the higher the chances of developing mole cancers or specifically, melanoma. Although all of these moles may be innocent there is a chance of developing an abnormal mole.

Look at the Five Signs of Skin Cancer to help you define and detect suspicious moles.

To further define, What is a Mole? …let’s look at some pictures of moles.

Normal Moles

Normal Skin Mole A normal mole is a precancerous mole that hasn’t changed and you’ve probably had for a long time. Often people elect to remove some of these normal moles, especially on the face for cosmetic reasons.

They can be removed by freezing, burning or surgically. Your dermatologist or a cosmetic specialist will determine the best method of removal for you. The cost of mole removal varies beginning around $150-$200 and up. It depends on the mole itself. You may do better cosmetically with a doctor who is a cosmetic specialist and you can expect to pay more, but it may be worth it for you.

Normal Skin Mole Natural Mole Removal is another option. Before using any natural mole removal remedy or any “at home” removal method, be sure it is a Non-Cancerous mole. If in doubt, get a dermatologist to biopsy it first. Natural mole removal usually leaves no scars, especially when the `directions for use` are followed properly.

Malignant Melanoma – Mole Cancers

Malignant Melanoma

If your mole has changed to the point of Malignant Melanoma then your dermatologist will determine your treatment plan according to the stage it has advanced to. Melanoma can advance quickly and be growing inward to your lymph nodes and internal organs without really noticing further changes on your skin. Read Meghan’s Story.

Malignant Melanoma As far as the cost of mole removal for a malignant melanoma; that will be determined by the extent of treatment needed to remove all of the cancer.

If you are one of the many who gets melanoma and has no health insurance coverage, then you may be a candidate for pre-existing conditions insurance. Click Here, scroll down a few short paragraphs and click on the “pre-existing health insurance” link.

Hi! My name is Nick and I’m 56 yrs. old and this is part of my story. Let me tell you, I was like a lot of people out there and I had no idea that skin cancer was anything bad. I had Basal cell back in 2007, but that was no big deal and it was removed and that was the end of that. No one told me that it was a type of skin cancer (I looked it up on my computer). But still no big deal, it would not kill me. But I did know the word "Melanoma"....." --by Nick
