It’s estimated by the American Academy of Dermatology that the average person has between 10 and 40 moles somewhere on their body. While the majority of moles are benign, there are some moles that can develop as dangerous signs of skin cancer. Certain risk factors like increased and unprotected sun exposure or a family history of malignant moles and skin cancer can serve as increased risk factors.
