Every human being has moles on various locations of the body, which can be check out with a mole map. It is very normal for them to be present even though many find it to be quite annoying. It is possible that moles can be removed using the conventional methods or through laser surgery. However, this is not recommended for those who are in good health.

Malignancy most commonly occurs in moles and spreads to other parts of the body when it is neglected or undetected in its early stage.

As there is a faster growth of malignant moles, the cancerous element spreads to other locations of the skin. At this stage, it would be impossible to find a proper treatment and there is a chance that a person might die due to melanoma. Detection is the best option available for any individual to overcome skin cancers.
