What are Moles?
Moles, the black skin lesions typically symmetrical and uniform in colour, are what we call melanoma. They come in a wide range of brown tones. Moles can be congenital (existing from birth) or acquired (developed over time at any age). Moles may form in response to prolonged sun exposure. Only moles that have undergone a noticeable appearance change should be of medical concern. Symptoms may include bleeding, itching, soreness, or pain in addition to visible colour, stature, size, or shape alterations.
What Are Lipomas?
Lipomas are benign fatty tumours that are soft, spherical, and movable. They will not disappear by themselves and will not develop into cancerous tumours.
