What causes Moles


It is a popular belief that if the mother is frightened or has some exciting experience immediately before the birth of a child, the child will have moles on his body.


But this is only a superstition.  There has been no scientific explanation for moles on our skin as yet.  Usually moles are called “birth marks” because they are present from the very birth or appear very shortly after birth.


This is nevertheless a fact that every person has at least one mole in his body and the average moles one can have on his body is 14.  Moles appear on almost any part of the body including scalp.  Mole is in fact the growth in a tissue, which may in turn be consisting of tissues of blood vessels or cells having pigment, or hair-follicle cells.  This is the reason why each mole has a different shape.


Moles are not desirable chiefly for two reasons.  First, moles may become malignant with cancerous growth.  But it is not such a usual case.  Secondly, appearance of moles in any odd part of body may not look attractive, particularly when they are large and on the face.  But they do not cause any block or disturbance in our body’s routine.  So, it’s best not to tamper with them.  But if mole is placed where it is likely to be hurt it’s advisable to get it removed properly.


If any mole causes irritation, scaling, chance of colour and bleeding, it’s best to get it removed before it takes shape of some serious infection.
