Size – if a mole is more than 5mm in size or if it has grown in size
Shape – if the mole is irregular
Border – if there are irregular borders
Colour – if there has been a change in colour or if the mole has variation in colour within it
Bleeding – if there has been bleeding without injury
Itching – if a mole has developed itchiness
If your moles has any of these features you should arrange a consultation for assessment of the mole.
