Atypical Moles Information and Treatment

Atypical moles also called as Clark's nevi or dysplastic nevi, is a disorder of the skin characterized by the presence of many mole-like tumors. Most experts believe that atypical moles are at higher risk of turning into melanoma as compared to normal moles. People with many atypical moles should have a complete skin exam each year. The skin cells that produce pigment i.e. melanocytes, which sometimes group together to form moles. They may be flat or raised, smooth or rough (wartlike), and may have hairs growing from them. Moles usually are easily recognized by their typical appearance. They do not itch or hurt, and they are not a form of cancer. Atypical mole on the skin, have some features that are same as melanoma such as an irregular border, slight variation in color, or asymmetry. Generally most of the people people have 10-20 moles over their bodies. But People with this disorder found to have more than 100 moles, at least some of which are unusual in size and structure. They are usually larger than normal moles and have irregular borders. These type of moles are generally seen on the back but may appear anywhere on the body, including below the waist, on the scalp, on the breasts or buttocks. There are chances that they may fade into surrounding skin into a flat portion.

Atypical Moles is basically a skin disease typical to youth, but Atypical Moles may occur to the people at any age. While atypical moles are considered to be pre-cancerous (more likely to turn into melanoma than regular moles), not everyone who has atypical moles gets melanoma. In fact, most moles both ordinary and atypical ones never become cancerous. Thus the removal of all atypical nevi is unnecessary. In fact, most of the melanomas found on people with atypical moles arise from normal skin and not an atypical mole. Dysplastic change implies abnormal cell development, which does not necessarily imply precancerous change. These atypical moles, show irregular outlines, and different shades and patterns of brown color. If they appear in a person with a family history of melanoma and are multiple in number, the incidence of cancer developing reaches 100%. If they are sporadic in pattern and number, they should be photographed and reexamined regularly.
