How to spot if a mole is cancerous : Animation graphic reveals the ABCDE of skin cancer warning sign

How to spot if a mole is cancerous: Animation graphic reveals the ABCDE of skin cancer warning signs Skin cancer is the second most common form of the disease in people under 50 And yet, experts warn, the rate of early detection could be much higher Here, Dr David Fisher of Massachusetts General Hospital explains the benefits of early detection - and we present an animation graphic on how to check yourself As the years go by, our skin loses it springy freshness - and mysterious lumps and bumps start to appear. These blemishes can come in all shapes and sizes, and many are harmless. But slight changes could be a red flag: skin cancer is the second most common form of the disease in people under 50. Melanoma, a type of skin cancer, is one of the most treatable cancers. If caught early, the entire cancer could be removed simply by removing the mole in question. Basal cell carcinoma is even more manageable - only rare cases spread beyond the site. And yet, experts warn, the rate of early detection could be much higher. 'Many people are afraid of checking,' Dr David Fisher, director of the Melanoma Program at Massachusetts General Hospital, told Daily Mail Online. 'It's one of those fear and denial-type things. People would rather not know than find out something scary or devastating. 'But the thing is, six out of seven melanoma cases are cured just by catching it early and removing it. In other words, early detection could be life-saving.' He added: 'That statistic should help motivate people to be really proactive, to realize that there's a benefit to this. 'Not every cancer has that type of opportunity to catch it so early. This type of cancer does.' Moles are clusters of cells that produce a pigment in your skin. The more moles someone has on their body, the higher the risk of melanoma. Risk also increases if you have fair skin and red hair, if you sunbathe and if you use sunbeds. Of course, not all moles are dangerous: it's normal to have them. However, it can be easy to spot ones that are worth worrying about. Dermatologists use a simple list of five warning signs, using the rule ABCDE. This animation (above) explains how they work. A – asymmetry This means spotting an irregular shaped mole. B – borders Look to see if there are ragged edges to the mole. C – color change If a mole changes in color or is a different color in one part than in another. D – diameter Any increase in size should be checked out, but particularly more than about 6mm across. E – elevation In this graphic, the E section is classed as 'elevation', telling you to watch out for the mole raising from the surface, especially if it is irregularly raised. However, Dr Fisher explains, many dermatologists have different classifications for this. His preferred word is 'evolving'. 'Is it changing? Do you notice anything suspicious or concerning? That is key,' he says. 'You need to have a very low threshold for what counts as "concerning". I have yet to find a patient who is mad because it wasn't melanoma. It's always worth checking.'

Skin Cancer - Symptom, Causes & Diagnosis (Finding Earth)
 
06:04
Skin cancer There are three major types of skin cancers: basal cell carcinoma (BCC), squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), and melanoma. The first two skin cancers are grouped together as non-melanoma skin cancers. Symptoms of skin cancer (non-melanoma) Basal cell carcinoma Squamous cell carcinoma Bowen's disease symptoms of melanoma The ABCDE rule : it is another guide to the usual signs of melanoma. A is for Asymmetry: One half of a mole or birthmark does not match the other. • B is for Border: The edges are irregular, ragged, notched, or blurred. • C is for Color: The color is not the same all over and may include shades of brown or black, or sometimes with patches of pink, red, white, or blue. • D is for Diameter: The spot is larger than 6 millimeters across, although melanomas can sometimes be smaller than this. • E is for Evolving: The mole is changing in size, shape, or color. Some melanomas do not fit the rules described above Other warning signs are: • A sore that does not heal • Spread of pigment from the border of a spot into surrounding skin • Redness or a new swelling beyond the border • itchiness, tenderness, or pain • Change in the surface of a mole – scaliness, oozing, bleeding, Causes of skin cancer Most skin cancer is caused by ultraviolet (UV) light damaging the DNA in skin cells. The main source of UV light is sunlight. types of UV light: • ultraviolet A (UVA) • ultraviolet B (UVB) • ultraviolet C (UVC) Increased risk Certain factors are believed to increase chances of developing skin cancer, including: • pale skin that does not tan easily • blonde hair • blue eyes • older age • a large number of moles • a large number of freckles • a condition that suppresses your immune system, such as HIV • past History of skin cancer • skin cancer in the family • radiation exposure • A weak immune system • Human papilloma virus (HPV) Exposure to Chemicals like • Coal tar • Soot • Pitch • Creosote • Petroleum products, such as mineral oil or motor oil • Shale oils • Arsenic Other skin conditions Psoriasis Solar keratosis Xeroderma pigmentosum Gorlin’s syndrome Birthmarks some types of birthmark in the outer layer of skin can increase the risk of developing a type of skin cancer called basal cell carcinoma (BCC). Diagnosis Medical history and physical exam Usually the first step the doctor takes is to get a medical history. During the physical exam, your doctor will note the size, shape, color, and texture of the area(s) in question, and whether they are bleeding, oozing, or crusting. Skin biopsy If the doctor thinks a spot might be a melanoma, a sample of skin will be removed from the suspicious area and sent to a lab to be looked at under a microscope. This is called a skin biopsy. Shave biopsy Punch biopsy Incisional and excisional biopsies Fine needle aspiration biopsy Surgical lymph node biopsy Sentinel lymph node biopsy Chest x-ray This test may be done to help determine whether melanoma has spread to the lungs. Computed tomography (CT) scan The CT scan uses x-rays to make detailed, cross-sectional images of your body. Unlike a regular x-ray, CT scans can show the detail in soft tissues (such as internal organs). CT-guided needle biopsy: CT scans can also be used to help guide a biopsy needle into a suspicious area within the body. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan Like CT scans, MRI scans give detailed images of soft tissues in the body. But MRI scans use radio waves and strong magnets instead of x-rays to create pictures. A contrast material might be injected, just as with CT scans, Positron emission tomography (PET) scan A PET scan can help show if the cancer has spread to lymph nodes or other parts of the body. It is most useful in people with more advanced stages of cancer Blood tests Blood tests aren’t used to diagnose melanoma, but some tests may be done before or during treatment, especially for more advanced melanomas.

How to Spot Signs of Skin Cancer
 
00:42
Learn how to identify the most common signs of skin cancer. Early detection is the most critical factor in diagnosing and treating skin cancer before it spreads. While there are different types of skin cancer, they share many common factors that patients can look for themselves. Skin cancer can usually be spotted early by monitoring existing moles on your body. Five factors, often called the ABCDE's of skin cancer, denote the most commonly seen changes that occur in moles prior to the development of skin cancer. They are: Asymmetry, Border, Color, Diameter, (and) Evolution. If you notice any of these changes, or the appearance of new growths, see a dermatologist immediately.

ABCDE are a quick way to remember how to look for a melanoma. A, stands for asymmetry. Most small moles are symmetric and round. Most melanomas are not. So if you notice a mole that has an irregular pattern at the edge that is not symmetric, that is a suspicious case for melanoma. B is for borders. Most nevi have very sharp borders, unlike melanoma where the pigments, the color bleeds into the normal tissue. That is also a concerning sign for a melanoma. C stands for color. Multiple colors including shades of brown, black, white, red and blue are suspicious for a melanoma. D stands for diameter. Any mole larger than six millimeters that is new, needs to be evaluated by a dermatologist to rule out a melanoma, and E stands for evolving. Any changing moles or new moles should be examined by a dermatologist.

By identifying suspicious moles using the ABCDE guidelines, early detection of melanomas can lead to early treatment. Australia has the highest incidence of melanoma in the world, and more than 11,000 people are diagnosed every year. However, the good news is that melanoma is often identifiable at an early stage where simple treatment may result in a complete cure. To find out more about melanoma, visit www.melanoma.org.au.

SKIN CANCER SYMPTOMS
 
01:42
In addition to experiencing itching and changes in skin as described above, there are five keys of skin cancer symptoms (called the ABCDE’s) that can help you recognize skin cancer early. Doctors recommend performing regular head-to-toe checks while keeping an eye out for these five ABCDE’s of skin tumors: 1. A (Asymmetry) If you draw a line through the middle of the mole or lesion on your skin, if the two halves are not symmetrical this is a sign that the tumor may be malignant. 2. B (Border) Non-malignant tumors will typically have a smooth, regular border. Whereas, the border of an early melanoma will generally be jagged or uneven. 3. C (Color) A tumor of only one color is a good sign because melanomas are known for being a variety of colors; particularly shades of black, brown, and tan. They may also be blue, red and other colors. 4. D (Diameter) As a rule of thumb, non-malignant skin cancers are smaller than ¼ inch in diameter. Melanomas are usually larger in diameter, so keep an eye on anything that is larger. 5. E (Evolving) If the tumor changes in color, elevation, size, or shape and if any new symptom arises (bleeding, crusting, itching, etc.) then it could be dangerous.

Sign And Symptoms Of Melanoma Skin Cancer In Women - Warning Signs Of Melanoma Skin Cancer The most important warning sign of melanoma is a new spot on the skin or a spot that is changing in size, shape, or color. Another important sign is a spot that looks different from all of the other spots on your skin (known as the duckling sign). If you have one of these warning signs, have your skin checked by a doctor. The ABCDE rule is another guide to the usual signs of melanoma. Be on the lookout and tell your doctor about spots that have any of the following features: A is for Asymmetry: One half of a mole or birthmark does not match the other. B is for Border: The edges are irregular, ragged, notched, or blurred. C is for Color: The color is not the same all over and may include different shades of brown or black, or sometimes with patches of pink, red, white, or blue. D is for Diameter: The spot is larger than 6 millimeters across (about ¼ inch – the size of a pencil eraser), although melanomas can sometimes be smaller than this. E is for Evolving: The mole is changing in size, shape, or color. Some melanomas don’t fit these rules. It’s important to tell your doctor about any changes or new spots on the skin, or growths that look different from the rest of your moles. Other warning signs are: A sore that doesn’t heal Spread of pigment from the border of a spot into surrounding skin Redness or a new swelling beyond the border of the mole Change in sensation, such as itchiness, tenderness, or pain Change in the surface of a mole – scaliness, oozing, bleeding, or the appearance of a lump or bump Subscribe To Our Channel Healthy Life Aim here-https://goo.gl/g5dZYv melanoma skin cancer

I get a few comments every now and again on why I hate tanning. Well the reason why I hate tanning is that I have a good friend whose mom suffered through skin cancer. This happened because she tanned a lot. She is alive but during the treatment she was in great pain. So much pain that I wouldn’t even wish it on my worst enemy. So yeah... happy way to start a video huh? What’s going on everybody! My name is Jack Jenkins and today we are talking about skin cancer. So why are we talking about skin cancer? Well first, if you are in the medical field, and I know a lot of my viewers are, you will encounter cancer at some point. Even if you are not in the medical field someone you know might get affected by this group of diseases. Another reason is that skin cancer is so prevalent. Don’t think so, well one in five Americans will get some form of skin cancer at one point. One in five. Granted most tumors of skin cancer are not harmful and wont metastasize but some will. According to the national cancer institute metastasis is spread of cancer or other diseased cells from the first form place to another part of the body. Here is a pretty good illustration of a lung carcinoma traveling through the blood stream to the liver. We will talk about this process a lot more in our cancer biology course. So how do we get skin cancer? Well one of the most common ways is to be exposed too harmful ultraviolet radiation. Like I said in previous videos, the ultraviolet radiation will damage the bases within our DNA. This will cause adjacent pyrimidine bases to form together. This is called a pyrimidine dimer and as you can see from the image, will cause the dna to warp. Dimers can also happen to the uracil in RNA causing an Uracil dimer. Why are these dimers bad? Well it stops DNA replication for a while or until it repairs. If the DNA bases are repaired wrong, then it can lead to mutations that are very dangerous. This is how melanoma happens. With melanoma the dimers will happen to the melanocytes. The damage of this is great. The damage is so great that melanoma is Infact the most dangerous skin cancer. Unlike the next few cancers we will talk about, melanoma is highly metastatic and is resistant to chemotherapy. If caught early, melanoma can be treated. If it gets to other areas of the body, then the results are fatal. Melanoma can form wherever there is pigment. From the skin to the lips to even your eyes. However, we will stick with cutaneous or skin melanoma for this video. Melanoma usually appears as a spreading brownish blackish patch on the skin. It’s pretty noticeable in this form and the person who has this is quick to act and get treated. The dangerous form is when it starts from a mole as a third of melanoma does. It’s hard to determine when the mole turns from just an ordinary spot to a very deadly diseased group of cells. To help determine if a mole is cancerous, the American cancer society has an ABCDE rule to help you find signs of melanoma. People who tan or are out in the sun a lot should check themselves or get someone to check them every month. If you have a yes to one or more of the following symptoms, please get a doctor to check you out further. It can save your life. Now the ABCDE rule is simple. The A is for asymmetry. Does half the mole or birthmark not match the other half. The B is for Border. Is the border or edges of the mark irregular, ragged or blurred. The C is for Color, is the color of the mark uneven including different patches of brown or black. The D is for diameter. Is the spot larger than six millimeters across? Be careful with this rule as melanomas can be smaller than six millimeters. Lastly, the E is for evolving. Does the mark change in size, shape or color? Again, if you inspect yourself and find any of these rules to be broken, call a doctor fast. It may save your life. Now let’s talk about two other types of skin cancer. These are referred to as non-melanoma cancers. Those two non-melanoma cancers are basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma. Let’s start with the base cell carcinoma. Basal cell carcinoma is the most common type of skin cancer. That’s kind of good considering that this type of cancer is the slowest to spread and is the safest... as far as a cancer is concerned. Where it lacks in met stick risk it makes up in the disfigurement by creating tumors that will spread to surrounding tissues. Read the rest at Academyofone.org

Be on the lookout and tell your doctor about spots that have any of the following features: A is for Asymmetry. This benign mole is not asymmetrical. If you draw a line through the middle, the two sides will match, meaning it is symmetrical. If you draw a line through this mole, the two halves will not match, meaning it is asymmetrical, a warning sign for melanoma. B is for Border. A benign mole has smooth, even borders, unlike melanomas. The borders of an early melanoma tend to be uneven. The edges may be scalloped or notched. C is for Color. Most benign moles are all one color, often a single shade of brown. Having a variety of colors is another warning signal. A number of different shades of brown, tan or black could appear. A melanoma may also become red, white or blue. D is for Diameter. Benign moles usually have a smaller diameter than malignant ones. Melanomas usually are larger in diameter than the eraser on your pencil tip (¼ inch or 6mm), but they may sometimes be smaller when first detected. E is for Evolving. Common, benign moles look the same over time. Be on the alert when a mole starts to evolve or change in any way. When a mole is evolving, see a doctor. Any change — in size, shape, color, elevation, or another trait, or any new symptom such as bleeding, itching or crusting — points to danger. A change in texture. Catching suspicious moles is about more than just appearance. The feel of a mole or spot is often just as important an indicator of risk. Think twice if a mole or spot is itchy or painful. Bleeds, scabs or becomes crusty. Becomes inflamed. Becomes thicker, firm or raised in the center.

A simple A, B, C, D, E rule can help you remember how to spot a melanoma. A is asymmetric. Most moles are round and symmetric. Most melanomas are not. So, if you see a new mole or changing mole that shows that one side of it is darker, has fuzzier borders it's important to get that checked. B is for borders. Most normal nevi, or moles, have sharp borders. You can draw a perfect line around it. Most melanomas do not. Most melanomas have irregular borders where there's bleeding of the pigment into the normal skin. C is color. Multiple colors, especially more than two colors within a mole is very suspicious for a melanoma. Brown, shades of brown, black, white, red can all be seen within a melanoma and it should be checked. D is diameter. Recent studies have shown that moles that are greater than six millimeter should be examined to make sure it's not melanoma. Most melanomas when caught early can be easily treated. So it's important to get any of these moles with these symptoms to get checked.

What is an Atypical Mole Ask Dr Day
 
02:29
http://innovationdermatology.com/ Hello, my name is Dr. Day with Innovation Dermatology. We often have a question, what should I be looking for in an atypical mole? Moles are common. The more fair-skinned you are, generally, the more moles you will have. As we age we develop more moles up until about the age of 40 to 50. A simple mnemonic helps patients to identify which moles are of concern or not. Generally, we would call this the "ABCDE" rule. When we go through the "ABCDE" rule, A stands for asymmetry. If you were to take a mole draw a line down the middle does one side of the mole match the other? B stands for border. The border of the mole is important because if it’s irregular or scalloped it suggests that the mole would not be nesting uniformly under a microscope. C stands for color. Does the mole have many different colors? Now many of us have moles that have light brown and dark brown colors, that’s not what I’m talking about here. What I’m talking about our colors like jet black, blue, red, white, accompanied by Brown and light brown. D stands for diameter. Many people are born with birthmarks or what we call a congenital mole, that is larger than 6 millimeters. Those generally, will grow with us through adolescence and then stay a uniform size. What we're talking about when we talk about diameter is a new mole that has increased in size beyond about the tip of a pencil or 6mm. If you have asymmetry, irregular borders, multiple colors, or increasing size, you would then meet criteria E, elevated or evolving. This means your mole is changing. If you’ve answered yes to those questions then that’s a mole worth having reviewed by your physician or dermatologist. And don’t forget your sunscreen. In a recent study in New York daily application of sunscreen in patients who already had melanoma help reduce their Risk by up to half.

Cancer Detection Easy as "A-B-C-D-E"
 
02:29
According to the American Academy of Dermatology, one in five Americans will develop skin cancer in their lifetime. The first step of skin cancer detection starts with you and it's as simple as A-B-C-D-E. Dr. Mark Tusa with the Chattanooga Skin and Cancer Clinic says to use this method when examining moles and skin legions every two to three months. Jamie Slagle came to the Clinic to get a skin biopsy thanks to this detection method. She noticed a color change, or "C" and decided to head to the doctor. "It does have some strange colors in it in some areas ... some darker and lighter colors ... we will do a biopsy on that. We will see what shows up," said Mark Tusa, M.D. "Detecting early can spare you of any major surgeries or death," said Dr. Tusa. Here are the A-B-C-D-E's of skin cancer detection: Asymmetry or when one-half does not look like the other half. Border or when there are irregular, scalloped, or poorly-defined edges. Color or when there are different shades of color. Diameter or when it is greater than six millimeters, which is the size of a pencil eraser. Evolving or when it looks different from the rest or is changing in size, shape, or color. "A majority of moles are non-cancerous, but when a patient says that things are changing they need to be biopsied and checked," said Dr. Tusa. A skin biopsy is a quick and virtually painless procedure. Doctors can do it right in their office and they will have results back in less than 10 days. "Okay so how was that, how do you feel? "There was just a little tiny sting and then you can't feel a thing, I didn't even know they were doing it," said Jamie Slagle, biopsy patient.

How to Recognize Melanoma|metastatic melanoma survival rates
 
02:05
How to Recognize Melanoma|metastatic melanoma survival rates Checking your skin for melanoma is something that everyone should regularly do. Malignant melanoma is the most deadly form of skin cancer, but early recognition can save lives. While melanomas can differ in appearance, there are techniques to recognize all types. The ABCDE rule evaluates moles for asymmetry, border variations, color, diameter, and evolution, while the EFG rule looks at a mole’s elevation, firmness, and growth. The “ugly duckling” method focuses on identifying which moles are different. After you learn to recognize melanoma, you’ll be able to check your skin with confidence. Any mole that enlarges, changes in color or begins to itch should be evaluated by a skin cancer specialist. Use these rules when looking at a suspicious blemish, mole or freckle. 1 Check if the mole is elevated. Nodular melanomas, which make up about 20% of cases, don’t follow the ABCDE rule. Luckily, they do have common features that help you identify them, such as being elevated. Check for moles that feel like a bump. Compared to other moles, they will feel raised 2 Feel if the mole is firm. Benign moles usually feel like the rest of your skin, so a mole that is hard is questionable. A nodular melanoma will be firm to the touch.[9] Use your finger to check the firmness of your moles. Check with your doctor if a mole feels hard. SUBSCRIBE TO MORE VIDEOS

Skin cancer signs: Use THIS test to check if you have symptoms of the dangerous cancer.

Skin cancer signs: Use THIS test to check if you have symptoms of the dangerous cancer. SKIN cancer symptoms can include changes to your skin’s surface. You are more at risk of developing the condition if you get sunburnt, have red hair or lots of moles or freckles. Take THIS test to check if you have signs of this cancer. Skin cancer signs and symptoms will often display on or around skin blemishes and moles You can checkyour moles for symptoms of skin cancer using the ABCDE test This test uses visual assessment to establish if you have skin cancer symptoms You are at more risk of skin cancer, or melanoma, if you have got sunburnt Skin cancer, or melanoma, signs and symptoms tend to appear on the skin's surface. The cancer can also occur in the eye, in rare cases, when it develops from pigment producing cells. Common symptoms tend to include changes to moles and freckles on the skin. You are more likely to develop the dangerous cancer, diagnosed in 15,000 Brits in 2015 alone, if you get sunburnt, have lots of freckles or moles, or have red hair. Mr Rowan Pritchard Jones, a consultant surgeon at Whiston Hospital, UK, recommends taking the ABCDE test to check whether you have skin cancer, if you’re worried you might be developing the condition. “Skin cancer is one of the major cancer killers in the UK, but if it is caught early enough then, as with all cancers, patients can have a good [chance of recovery],” he said. “Changes in your moles, as well as new moles and skin blemishes, are potential signs of the cancer.” The recommended ABCDE test is an “easy rule to remember when checking your skin”. It should be applied to any marks on the skin that you are worried about. If a mole or freckle fits the description given by the test, such as looking “uneven” or “misshapen”, it may be a sign of skin cancer. The test is also recommended by the NHS on its website. The ABCDE skin cancer test may help you find signs and symptoms of the condition early. Asymmetry Rowan recommends checking whether the mole looks “uneven” or “misshapen”. Border You should check whether the border of the mole is “blurred”. Colour What colour is it? Rowan says you should check whether it is of “a mix of shades” or has “darkened” since you last looked. Diameter If your mole or freckle is bigger than six millimetres across it could be a sign of skin cancer. Elevation or enlargement Rowan adds you should check if the mole has “changed in shape” or “become raised above the skin’s surface”. “You should always also look out for itching, bleeding and crusting and contact your GP straight away if you spot these symptoms, who will usually refer you to a skin specialist,” adds Roger. The comments come after a survey, conducted by UK-based North West Cancer Research, found that almost 70 per cent of people in the North West of England are “unaware” of the early warnings signs of skin cancer. The survey also showed that one in five people in the area don’t use suncream, an important method of preventing the condition. North West Cancer Research has launched a #suncreamselfie campaign to get people to put on suncream to protect against skin cancer. The campaign is being backed by several celebrities, including Real Housewives of Cheshire regular Katie Kane. Alastair Richards, CEO North West Cancer Research, said, “By raising awareness of skin cancer, its symptoms and associated risk factors of over exposure to UV rays, we hope we can encourage people to stay safe in the sun and reduce the number of skin cancer cases across the North West”.

How does Dr. Ebrahim check to see if a mole is suspicious? She uses the ABCD rule: Asymmetry, Border, Color or color change, Diameter, plus Evolution of the mole. Dr. Ebrahim, in her Dermatology clinic uses Dermoscopy to evaluate moles. The dermatascope provides 10 times magnification which allows her to see deeper structures of the mole. Dr. Ebrahim recommends that you have your moles evaluated through a combination of naked eye exam and Dermoscopy.

Watch more videos about skin diseases, treatment options, and try our free "diagnosis wizard" we call DermaLearn at OnlineDermClinic.com. The number of skin cancers is rising at an alarming rate. In the U.S., the risk for melanoma is now 1 in 58. This is up from 1 in 1500 in 1930. If melanoma is diagnosed early, the chance for cure approaches 100%; however, for widespread metastatic melanoma, survival is only 6 to 9 months. What you don't know can harm you or prove fatal. Avoid being a statistic and learn the warning signs and causes of this potentially curable form of skin cancer.Key points Typically Appear in sun exposed areas of skin tend to be less than 6 mm in diameter, have an orderly, homogenous surface with a symmetrical, sharply demarcated border, round or oval shape, and have a light to dark brown color. Are categorized as junctional, compound, or intradermal based upon their location in the epidermis or dermis Begin to appear within the first 6 months of life, most are present by the age of 30, and slowly regress with age. Most Nevi are benign, however atypical MN or a large number of nevi should be examined and followed by a dermatologist Common Acquired Melanocytic Nevi, or moles, are clusters of melanocytes that develop primarily due to genetic factors. However, there is some evidence that they may be created by a stimulus, such as ultraviolet radiation, that causes a proliferation of melanocytes. Melanocytes are pigment (melanin) producing cells and are formed from neural crest cells that migrate to the skin, central nervous system, eyes, and ears during normal embryogenesis. Melanocytic Nevi are categorized by their location in the skin as junctional nevus (epidermis), intradermal nevus (dermis), or compound nevus (both dermis and epidermis). Melanocytes begin in the basal layer of the epidermis coming together to form junctional nevi. Over time melanocytes may migrate down through the epidermis-dermis junction to the dermis forming compound and intradermal nevi respectively. Generally, Common Acquired Melanocytic Nevi first appear as brown papules or macules, smaller than 6mm in diameter. As we age, more nevi become visible and their appearance begins to change so that the nevi lose their pigmentation, and become more elevated and dome-shaped. Melanocytic nevi are generally light to dark brown, but may range in color from skin colored to jet black. Melanocytic Nevi appear in both men and women. Moles are more prevalent in light skinned people then dark skinned people. Darker skinned people tend to have MN appear on the palms, soles of their feet, and underneath their fingernails, while Light skinned people are more likely to have moles appear on their trunks and extremities. Melanocytic nevi first appear in early childhood and usually stop appearing by early adulthood. For this reason, new moles in middle or late adulthood should carry a higher suspicion for Melanoma. Most adults will have 10-30 moles on their body. Differential Diagnosis · Atypical Mole(Dysplastic nevus) · Melanoma, Malignant Melanoma · Congenital Nevi · Given their different appearances, Junctional, Intradermal, and Compound Nevi have their own differential diagnoses. Diagnosis Key points Clinical presentation is the most important aspect of diagnosis Histologic examination confirms diagnosis Diagnosis is primarily made by history and clinical presentation. When the clinical picture is murky, a complete excisional biopsy and histopathologic evaluation of the mole is made to rule out Melanoma. The histologic findings of small, uniform, symmetrical, well circumscribed nests of melanocytes are reassuring for melanocytic nevi. Treatment Key points In most cases moles do not require treatment Suspicious moles should be removed and examined Prevent skin damage from sun exposure Melanocytic Nevi are, by definition, benign and most moles remain benign throughout a person's lifetime. Therefore, most moles will never need to be treated. However, suspicion that a mole may be a Melanoma, a change in the size, shape, or pigmentation of the mole, chronic irritation, or cosmetic concerns are reasons that the melanocytic nevi may be removed via excisional biopsy. When this is performed, if possible, the entire lesion should be removed and undergo histologic evaluation to rule out malignancy. It is important for individuals who have a significant number of nevi to have counseling about the dangers of excessive sun exposure, skin protection, and to undergo periodic total skin inspections by a dermatologist.
