What Causes Moles

Nearly everybody around you has moles. Most people have moles by birth. There are several reasons why moles grow on the skin. These reasons can range from being exposed to the sun too much, or due to genetics, or ever fluctuations in your hormone levels. Most people witness the growth of moles when they are still in their childhood, but some people get them later in their life.

What Are Moles?

A mole is known as melanocytic naevi by its scientific name, it is a dark raised spot on the skin that is made up of skin cells grouped together instead of being individual. These cells are called melanocytes and they produce melanin, which is the natural pigment that gives your hair, and skin its natural color. Moles can grow in different sizes, forms, and shapes.

While the number of moles grown on an individual differs from person to person, someone having fair skin typically has more moles since their skin has less melanin. For example, American children, when they reach 15 years of age, have around 50 moles on average on their body. This information was revealed by top dermatologists of the U.S after extensive research. For the most part, people who have them, simply see a brown patch growing on their body that doesn’t cause any harm or pain. They also don’t require any treatment but some people may choose to remove them for cosmetic reasons.

What Causes Moles?

There are many causes of moles. We have listed down the most common causes of moles down below and how to treat them using over the counter serums, tinctures, and creams.

Excessive Sun Exposure

Sun exposure is one of the main causes of moles because when you get exposed to the sun, especially during your infancy years or in childhood, it increases the likelihood of moles growing on your skin. This is simply because the sun rays cause the skin to release more melanin.


Your genes also play a huge role in causing moles. If you start to develop moles on your body, it could be due to your genetics. Parents or relatives of yours who have moles on their skin means that this runs in your blood. If you suspect moles on your skin are caused by genetics, you should immediately see a dermatologist because moles caused by genetics could lead to a condition known as melanoma.


During pregnancy, menopause, or your teen years, your body goes through a lot of hormonal changes. This can cause moles to grow.

Treatment of Moles
