Moles are viruses on a person's skin. Most of the moles appear on the skin when a person is under 25, but in the following years new moles may appear under the influence of various factors. Very often the active appearance of moles in women is associated with pregnancy.

Moles are considered quite harmless spots on the skin, if not to allow their degeneration into cancer moles. Ordinary moles can be any size, shape, and colors: yellow, brown, black. Benign moles do not give a person any discomfort throughout his life.
