Getting more moles as we grow older?

Post by abbby » Thu, 02 Jan 2020 9:44 am

I've been getting more brown moles lately...it goes around the thigh area. Is there any way to stop getting more from forming and are there any self remedies to remove them? (Unlikely?)

It's due to age and UV light. Try to avoid sun. If you can visit a mole clinic in Australia they can check if there are any that a malignant. I wouldn't bother doing anything in Singapore - the docs here don't understand moles. Laser and burn (electric cauterisation) methods and sometimes surgery are used to remove them. I do have my bad ones removed routinely.

Thanks! I guess the only way is through lasers. Yes I think sun and UV rays are the main causes, been out in the sun lately and never did sun protection for my legs. ](*,)

i think moles are just natural way of ageing.
and unfortunately some moles are a symptons of cancer, again... something that we are unable to escape biologically... :(
