Moles are spots on the skin where pigmented cells have clustered together. They typically appear as light to dark brown spots on the skin that are either flat or raised. Most people have benign moles, which are harmless.

If you are concerned about a mole because it looks different from the others, or you are over age 30 and notice a new mole, call your EPIC PRIMARY CARE doctor. Also, call your doctor if you notice any signs that an existing mole may be atypical.
