WILL A MOLE GROW BACK AF­TER THE DOC­TOR RE­MOVES IT?

Women's Health (South Africa) - - ASK US ANYTHING -

AN­SWER Un­for­tu­nately, it may if there are rem­nants of the mole un­in­ten­tion­ally left in your skin – those cells can de­velop into a new mole. This is more likely to hap­pen if your moles are “shaved” off rather than ex­cised (mean­ing they’re cut out com­pletely). Im­por­tant: al­ways have your re­moved moles tested for cel­lu­lar ab­nor­mal­i­ties – these may in­di­cate you are at risk for a can­cer­ous growth and should have the mole area mon­i­tored reg­u­larly to pro­tect your­self.
