How To Remove Moles Naturally
Common moles are usually small (less than a quarter of an inch in diameter) with well defined borders and all one color (pink, brown or any color in between).
What is a common mole?
A common mole is a growth on the skin that develops when pigment cells (melanocytes) grow in clusters. Most adults have between ten and fourteen common moles on their bodies. These growths are usually found above the waist on areas exposed to the sun. They are seldom found on the scalp, breast, or buttocks.
Although common moles may be present at birth, they usually appear later in childhood. Most people continue to develop new moles until about age forty. The good news is that in older people, common moles tend to fade away.
Another name for a mole is a nevus and the plural is nevi.
What does a common mole look like?
- A common mole is usually smaller than a quarter inch.
- It is round or oval, has a smooth surface with a distinct edge, and is often dome-shaped.
- A common mole usually has an even color of pink, tan or brown.
- People who have dark skin or hair tend to have darker moles than people with fair skin or blonde hair.

Can a common mole turn into melanoma?
Yes, but this is a very rare occurrence.
Although common moles are not cancerous, people who have more than fifty common moles have an increased chance of developing melanoma.
Those who notice any of the following changes in a common mole should always seek medical advice:
- The color changes.
- The mole gets smaller or bigger in an uneven way (unlike normal moles in children, which get evenly bigger).
- The mole changes in shape, texture, or height.
- The skin on the surface becomes dry or scaly.
- The mole becomes hard or feels lumpy.
- It starts to itch.
- It bleeds or oozes.
The different ways to tackle moles
The following are different ways that are carried out by a medical or surgical professional:
- Laser is one method where a concentrated beam of light is used to break up the cells that make up the mole. An anesthetic is not usually required and the beam of light is gentle enough not to harm healthy skin. The mole should not be deep as the laser light is not able to penetrate deeply enough. Laser treatment can be costly.
- Excision is another method where the mole is cut away before the wound left behind is stitched. The work has to be carried out in a doctor's surgery. Depending on the size of the mole and the cut, the stitches are placed either deeply (to be absorbed by the body) or on the upper surface of the skin (to be removed later).
- A third way is to remove moles by excision with cauterization where a special tool is used to burn away the mole. One of the drawbacks is that great care is needed afterwards to ensure the successful healing of the wound.
Vitamin D can help
And in spite of all the anti-sunlight propaganda, exposure to sunlight (particularly UVB) helps to give protection as the vitamin D, that your body constantly produces in response to UVB radiation from sunlight, is protective. You can raise your vitamin D levels (a) through sun exposure or (b) with vitamin D3 supplements. Exposure to the sun to as much bare skin as possible during the hours of 10 am and 2 pm until the skin starts to turn pink (usually a maximum of twenty minutes) will mean your skin synthesizes vitamin D3 sulfate.
This form of vitamin D is water-soluble and can travel freely in your bloodstream. During the winter months, vitamin D3 supplementation from a reliable source is a useful back up as well as a top up if you have been found to be vitamin D deficient.
