Health Tip: Checking Your Child's Moles

Posted April 20, 2017

(HealthDay News) -- If your child's mole changes frequently or otherwise looks suspicious, it's time to see a doctor.

The American Academy of Dermatology says these warning signs shouldn't be ignored:
  • A mole that grows or changes quickly, or looks different from any other mole.
  • A mole that is dome-shaped, has an irregular border or is different colors.
  • A mole that bleeds or looks like an open sore.
  • Having 50 or more moles.
  • Having a large mole.
