First, you definitely need to see a dermatologist to get
your mole checked in person, as well as have a full body check for other moles.
Pigmented birthmarks, such as moles, result from an overgrowth of cells that
create pigment. A doctor should also evaluate a mole when it first appears.
Moles need to be checked regularly for changes in size, color or texture due to
the possibility of a sign of skin cancer.
