It’s not uncommon for individuals to have developed dozens of moles by the time they are in their mid-20s. Moles are generally harmless, but it is important to monitor your skin for signs of unusual changes and to consult a dermatologist if you notice any abnormalities. For example, some people may experience an itching or burning sensation, especially if a mole sustains physical trauma.
As you’ll learn by watching this video, cancerous growths almost never cause any symptoms that a person can feel such as burning or itching. However, if these abnormal sensations persist longer than a few weeks, it’s a good idea to talk to a dermatologist.
