Multiple Nevi (Moles)

« View all Cancer Types

Multiple nevi, known as moles, are growths on the skin. Moles are skin cells (melanocytes) that grow in a cluster instead of being spread throughout the skin. Moles appear in childhood either alone or in groups. As the years pass, moles usually slowly change by becoming raised or changing color. While moles rarely become cancerous, it’s important to know the difference between a mole and skin cancer (melanoma).
