Hello doctor. I want to ask. I have many moles, especially on my face. And some in other parts of the body. They are the same average size, some are a little big and small but flat (people say dead moles). Matching color, but getting more and more and these new moles are still small and some are getting bigger. Probably from genes or sun exposure. The problem is my father also has a lot of moles on his body, and when I was in school I used to have a lot of outdoor activities during the day. What I want to ask of my many moles are that there are some shapes that are not symmetrical (not round). But the color is in line with other moles, namely blackish brown. Does not change color, does not itch and pain, does not occur sores and bleeding. Does that include melanoma or a common mole?

Regards,

From the information you convey, from the characteristics of moles or nevus that you have, more leads to a normal condition of the nevus and does not lead to malignancy. Nevi that is normal or benign, although not symmetrical, but has clear boundaries with its surroundings, and does not bleed easily.

However, if you are evaluating that this nevus is getting bigger and / or has a change in character, then it is better to do further tests to confirm the risk of having a malignant character change, or to confirm the risk of melanoma.

You can consult directly with a dermatologist to examine and evaluate the condition of your nevus. The doctor can perform a direct examination of the area of ​​the nevus, or plan the necessary investigations to determine if there is a risk of melanoma.

That way, you won't have to worry about the birthmarks you have.

For daily care, avoid scratching, injuring either intentionally or not on this nevus. Use a sunscreen that is suitable for your skin, especially when you are outdoors and exposed to direct sunlight.

That is the information we can convey, also read moles.
