Moles — These are sexy decorations. But sometimes — danger signals that should not be ignored. Brown moles are formed by skin cells, in which the melanin pigment is concentrated. Red — the result of vascular proliferation. Moles on the leg appear in people during puberty, in pregnant women, in the period of a sharp weight gain, in representatives of the so-called third age. If the composition of the mole on the leg (acrochordon) is no different from others, then the special form of this formation requires increased attention of the owner.
