How do I know if my moles cause cancer?

Whenever you notice that a mole has changed in color, is bleeding or itchy, you should consult a doctor.

When a mole is dramatically different than all the others, has a larger size, uneven coloration or irregular shape, then it may be a good time to check with a dermatologist. The majority of moles are harmless, but prevention is better than to end up investing in painful treatments.
