Mole Removal in New Jersey at South Jersey Skin Care & Laser Center
For some people, a mole can be an identifying feature that's seen as a positive. But for others, a mole can be a nuisance that negatively impacts self-esteem. While some moles are completely harmless, others can be indicative of a more serious health issue that needs to be addressed. These facts stress the importance of a mole removal treatment from our New Jersey dermatology specialists.
At our practice, mole removal treatment for Philadelphia and New Jersey patients does more than just eliminate imperfections. In many cases, this treatment can preserve overall health. Often, the first sign of a malignant mole is a change in appearance. If any of your moles exhibit one or more of the changes indicated in the acronym below, contact South Jersey Skin Care to schedule a professional evaluation with one of our highly trained physician assistants or our board-certified dermatologist.

The ABCs of Mole Removal
- A stands for asymmetrical. Each half of the mole should match. If an irregular shape is noticed, the mole should be checked by a dermatologist.
- B stands for border. Unhealthy moles may have borders that look ragged or have an indistinct edge.
- C stands for color. Melanomas may be red, white, black, or blue in color. Also, if the color of the mole changes, it should be checked by a dermatologist.
- D stands for diameter. While it is possible for a melanoma to be any size, a mole larger than 1/4 inch should be checked by a dermatologist.
- E stands for evolving. Any change noticed in a mole should be checked. These changes can include bleeding, itching, or a change in color.
