Severely atypical moles
Dysplastic Moles or atypical moles are really quite common. There is a great deal of literature published about these moles by the American Academy of Dermatology or on the Dermatology Foundation web site. These moles are genetic and tend to make one more predisposed to skin cancer, especially melanoma. Please see a board certified dermatology twice a year for routine skin exams.
