Why do I get moles on my skin?

Solbari blog: Why do I get moles on my skin?

Why do I get moles on my skin?

Moles primarily form when your skin cells are damaged from exposure to sunlight. Which is why people with fair skin tend who are most susceptible to sunburn are likely to have more moles.

It is also common for moles to appear during adolescence or pregnancy as hormone levels change. Around 1 in 100 babies are born with moles which indicates that moles are also hereditary.

The vast majority of common moles are harmless or benign, but they can in some cases develop into a malignant or melanoma skin cancer.

A person who has more than 50 common moles or is routinely exposed to sunlight is particularly at risk of being diagnosed with melanoma skin cancer.

Around 90% of melanoma skin cancers are caused by the cumulative effects of sun exposure.

Medical experts recommend that people wear UPF sun protective clothing and broad brim sun hats as the best way to prevent sunburn, skin ageing and skin cancer.
