Types of moles (skin tumors)
Skin tumors can be benign, malignant, and prone to malignization.
Benign skin tumors: keratoma, soft fibroma, dermatofibroma, sebaceous nevus, papilloma, wart, cyst, hyperplasia of the sebaceous glands are safe in terms of malignization. Often they must be removed for aesthetic reasons or when located in a traumatized area.
Malignant skin tumors include basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, melanoma, etc.
Dermatoscopy is an in-depth examination method that allows the doctor to magnify and study your mole in detail, establish the presumptive diagnosis and degree of risk, and decide whether to remove it or follow up.
