Darst Dermatology offers personalized treatment for dysplastic moles in Charlotte, Matthews, and the surrounding North Carolina communities.
What Is a Dysplastic Mole?
In short, a dysplastic mole is one that doesn’t look like your other moles. It may have jagged edges or rough borders. Dysplastic moles are typically larger than pencil erasers. They are common among people with light skin.
Although dysplastic moles are not always cancerous, but may be, they can be an indicator that you are at risk for developing skin cancer. If you notice changes in a dysplastic mole, you should contact Dr. Darst’s office immediately to schedule an exam.
How Are Dysplastic Moles Treated?
Dr. Darst might choose to perform a biopsy on the dysplastic mole to determine if it’s cancerous or benign. The sample will be examined in a lab, and the results will direct the course of action. If cancer is present, the mole and surrounding tissue will be removed using a local anesthesia. Even if the mole is benign, you may opt to have it removed if it’s unattractive or if your clothing irritates it.
