Hello, let me introduce you to Devan at the age of 24, it’s been 1 week on my lower lip that a mole suddenly appeared, is this normal? Because previously I read here referring to the article on skin cancer. thanks.
Good afternoon, thanks for the question
Mole is a deposition of melanin pigment on the surface of the skin. Moles that are not classified as malignant can arise in anyone and any age, and most are harmless but can indeed interfere with appearance.
Characteristics of normal moles include:
1. Color, varies from brown to black, can also resemble the color of the skin, red, pink, or blue.
2. Shape, generally round or oval.
3. Texture, can be smooth, flat, rough, or prominent.
4. Size, no more than 6 mm.
5. Location, can spread throughout the body.
Beware if you have a mole with a different appearance, such as having rough edges and unevenness, asymmetrical shape, consisting of a mixture of two or three colors or more, and larger in diameter, increasingly large size, pain, and sometimes can bleed or fluid . If you experience this condition, then it is suspected clinical direction of skin malignancy.
Therefore do the examination independently carried out as an effort to early diagnosis, and if you find signs of malignancy as described above, you should immediately consult a doctor.
That's all, hope you can help.
