Moles are made up of the cells (melanocytes) which produce the dark pigment (melanin) that gives the skin its colour.
The number of moles increase up to the age of 30-40. New moles appearing in adulthood need to be monitored and checked if growing or changing.
Remember the ABCD and EFG rules:
A = Asymmetry in shape
B = Border irregularity
C = Colour change or variability
D = Dimensions (changing size)
EFG = an elevated and firm growing lesion
