About:

Nevus (if multiple: Nevi) is a collection of harmless colored cells. They are formed by pigment-producing skin cells and in most cases it's a non-cancerous disorder.

Common Known terms: Mole, Birthmark and Beauty Mark -

A nevus can be congenital if present when born with it or can be acquired if developed during childhood and adolescence. There are many types of nevi and most of them are harmless but some are serious and need timely examination and removal.

Symptoms:

Self-diagnosable A nevus can easily be diagnosed just by looking and touching the affected area. It does not need any treatment usually. However, if you find any change in color in mole, an increase in the number of nevi, or a noticeable increase in size, itchiness, or bleeding, it is important to consult a doctor.

Treatment

Self-Care: The common mole type does not need any care, but it is advisable to minimize direct exposure to the sun in case of skin irritation.

Medications: No medication is needed as most benign nevi are harmless. People can follow the ABCDE method developed to identify the sign of cancerous Nevus| non-neoplastic. If the nevus is found to be malignant during the examination, it is likely to be removed through excisional biopsy.
