Is manipulating moles a right thing to do?

What kinds of moles are dangerous for our health and what complications do they have?

A lot of time has passed since the famous Hindu mole of Yar Hafez, who occupied many poets. Now there are poets of sweet and witty speech who order to hand over “Khal Yar” to the blade of “Timar”. There are different types of moles, as “Zahra Zahiri”, a skin and hair specialist, says. He defines “mole” as follows: “There are cells in the body called melanocytes, which are of embryonic origin. If these cells multiply and form a mass, a mole is created.” According to him, there are many types of moles, and if they are connected to the basal layer (the lowest cell layer), the layer between the epidermis and the dermis, they are called “junctional” moles.
Exposure to sunlight plays a key role in creating these types of moles. Also, junctionals appear in children and adolescents. He also gives a warning: “If a junctional mole occurs after the age of 30, malignancy should be suspected.”

According to Zahiri, you can see these moles mostly on the palms, feet and genital area. Zahiri also says about Spilos mole, a kind of soft and smooth mole: “This mole is a round and flat lesion of pale brown color, inside which dark, dark brown or black spots can be seen.” He considers “Spylus” to be a “benign” mole. Umhal considers the appearance of another mole called “blue mole” to be Skype (skull skin) and buttocks and says: “During the migration of melanocytes, some of them remain in the deep part of the skin of the body, i.e. in the dermis or hypoderm, and create a blue mole.”

According to Zahiri, spitz nevus is more common in children: “The most common place is on the leg and face. It is full of blood vessels and can be seen as red bumps.”

In describing another mole called halo nevus, he also says: around this mole, a sticky or colorless halo is created. Sometimes this aura can be seen around Melano. He emphasizes that in this situation one should pay attention to the characteristic of the central mole. Zahiri points to the benign type of this mole and says: “It gradually recedes and disappears.” He introduces the moles mentioned above as typical moles and says: “These moles do not need to be removed unless they are over 6 mm in diameter.” Irregular and non-uniform color describes: “In addition to moles with a diameter of more than 6 mm, these moles should also be removed.” According to Dr. Zahiri’s advice, these moles should be examined periodically, and photographs should be taken of the lesions so that the attending physician can notice their changes in subsequent examinations. Because there may be changes in these moles and turn into malignant melanoma.

In response to the question of what “malignant melanoma” is, he says: “The microfactor of malignant melanoma is light skin and a history of sunburn, which naturally has a greater relationship between periodic heavy contact with the sun than chronic and mild contact with malignant melanoma. Also, family or personal history of melanoma; Having an atypical mole in a person and a congenital mole are other microfactors of malignant melanoma. According to this doctor, these moles usually have no symptoms, but sometimes they may be accompanied by itching, bleeding, and pain.

Zahiri emphasizes that the cyst that comes back after removal must be biopsied and examined pathologically. In response to the question of which people are prone to the return of moles, he says: “Those who have a genetic and family history of malignant melanoma moles.” Those who have a family history of multiple moles or have multiple moles in their body.

What spots should we remove?
According to Zahiri, it is better to remove moles that are in constant friction and movement, although not in terms of the risk of malignancy, but these moles may be injured and cause many problems.

A freckle is not a mole, and the creation of a mole involves a lot of cell proliferation, but in freckles, the cells do not multiply, only the production of melanin increases. There is no definitive treatment for freckles, only the occurrence and darkening of the lesions can be prevented.

According to him, there are many methods to remove moles, including cutting and removing and stitching the desired mole, RF surgical device that does not need to be cut and removed, etc. Also, Zahiri does not recommend the method of shaving a mole and says: “Removing a mole does not lead to malignant melanoma, except for moles that are likely to be malignant.” Therefore, before removing the mole, the necessary tests and examinations should be done about the mole.” He also recommends: “remove moles that are likely to be malignant or cause problems for the patient in terms of aesthetics and function.” According to this expert, touching and manipulating the mole usually does not make it malignant, but it is recommended
