Reasons for removing a nevus
Let us explain: moles, or nevi, are congenital and acquired. The first appear on the skin of a child in the first two years of life, acquired – from about the age of ten. Moles can be of different sizes, shapes, colors – these characteristics can change over the course of life. Moreover, they need to be monitored and, in case of a suspicious change, do not postpone a visit to the doctor. It is worth remembering that approximately 20% of melanomas develop against the background of nevi. And if you notice the appearance of a mole after forty years, then this is an immediate reason for a visit to a dermato-oncologist.
Before removing a mole, you need to understand its nature: is it benign or threatens to develop into a malignant formation. In the first case, the cosmetologist is engaged in the removal and the goal is aesthetic. In the second, the doctor will perform dermatoscopy and histological examination (examination of tissue under a microscope), and then decide which type of therapy to choose.

Hugh Jackman: basal cell carcinoma
Hugh Jackman has been living with a diagnosis of basal cell carcinoma since 2013, the most common form of epithelial malignancy of the skin. Basalioma almost never gives metastases, but there is little pleasant – the diagnosis requires observation by a doctor. Recently, we spoke in detail about this disease using the example of Natalya Senchukova and Viktor Rybin – they successfully overcame it.
The Hollywood actor had moles on his face removed six times, which posed a potential danger. And every time he shared his feelings with followers, posting a photo with bandages on his face. Jackman strongly recommends that everyone use a high-protection sunscreen and see a doctor if they notice new moles or changes in the size of existing ones on the skin. He went to the doctor only at the insistence of his wife – this greatly facilitated the work of doctors. Now the actor is a regular client of his dermato-oncologist. “Every three months I go through a checkup. Now this is the norm for me. Doctors say that perhaps the cancer will reappear, and, well, if this is my cross, so be it, ”the celebrity shares with fans.
