Causes of Moles
We inherit from our parents, along with the amount of sun we get in our childhood. Moles occur more if you are more exposed to sun.
How moles are transmitted
Moles usually occur when cells in skin grow in a cluster instead of being spread throughout the skin. Moles may darker during pregnancy, teenage years, or being more out in the sun.

Moles are generally medium to dark brown but can also be your skin color or black.
Diameter of Moles
If mole is 1/4 inch or gets any larger, you must go to a doctor.
Any doctor or nurse can check the skin and determine. They can remove the abnormal tissue and a small amount of normal tissue around it. If it is cancer the tissue may also be tested for certain gene changes. Most doctors recommend lymph node surgery. Other drugs or perhaps vaccines may also be recommended. Chemotherapy drugs destroy cancer cells. They can be given in pill form that it travels throughout your body. You can get radiation therapy or biological therapy.
