  • Moles may appear from birth and it is called congenital birth mark or moles may be acquired as the person grows older. Moles come with different sizes and circular in shape. You can see people having few moles while others have more and are scattered anywhere in the body. Moles run in the family, and if you have more than 20 moles in your body, it’s time to see your dermatologist.

  • People may wonder about where moles come from skin that all of a sudden they just appeared so quickly. One should examine his or her lifestyle. If the person is constantly outdoors and got sunburns, there are greater chances of developing moles. Sunburn from childhood to present contributes to the formation of cancerous moles or melanoma later in life. If people are not protecting their skin while outdoors by using sunscreen, wearing proper clothing, sunglasses, hats and other anti sun gadgets, sooner or later moles will appear and turn into melanoma.

  • Where do moles come from skin? If you have no family history of moles and you are getting moles, it could be attributed to the excessive exposure to UV radiation. Many believed that long time ago people have lesser risks of getting melanoma than today. Environmental factor such as the thinning of the ozone layer makes the UV radiation become stronger when it hits the earth, thus causing sunburn and other bad effects to the human skin. When the skin is subjected to excessive UVR for prolonged period of time the skin’s DNA will react causing the formation of moles. Existing moles on the skin will be mostly affecting and will turn into melanoma later in life.

  • I don't normally paste all of that information but you asked a question and I have no idea when your moles appeared, how much sunlight you get, etc... so I cannot accurately answer the question without pasting all of this info and covering all bases. GL!
