Moles are usually harmless collections of pigmented cells called melanocytes on your skin. They can appear alone or in multiples. Moles are also called nevi; a single mole is a nevus. Most moles are present on the torso, but they are also commonly found on your face, arms and legs. Moles can be present in more obscure locations as well — including on your scalp, under your nails, in your armpits and around your genitals.

Most of us have from 10 to 40 moles. The number of moles you have may constantly change. New moles may appear up through your midadult years, but most appear by age 20. Some moles disappear with advancing age.

It's especially important to become familiar with the moles on your skin because, in rare cases, they can become cancerous. Monitoring your moles and other pigmented patches, such as freckles and age or liver spots, is an important first step in reducing your risk of skin cancer — especially malignant melanoma, which may begin in or near a mole or other dark spot on the skin. Melanoma also can arise in areas of normal pigmentation.

Aye, I was told to keep an eye on the mole I have on my arm incase it got any larger (thus suggesting it had turned cancerous). Thankfully it hasnt changed atall yet
