A mole is developed on the skin when a group of cells called melanocytes grow in a cluster and produce melanin, a naturally occurring pigment providing skin colour. The sun exposure or the pregnancy may darken the moles.

Types of Moles
Not all moles are the same. Here is a quick guide to the most common types moles:
1. Dysplastic nevi: Also known as atypical moles, these are generally larger than other moles with irregular shapes and uneven colors. Normally, most dysplastic nevi are benign, but they share both cancerous and pre-cancerous signs. Any changes occurring on these moles should be checked with a dermatologist.
2. Congenital nevi: These are the moles present on the body at birth or within the first year of the child’s life. These type of moles is caused by the melanocyte cells, hence more likely to develop into melanoma later in life, than the other moles. These moles need to be monitored as the child grows. Congenital moles usually appear in about one in 100 people.
3. Acquired moles: These types of moles appear during childhood or adulthood. Mostly, acquired moles are benign. However, there are chances that sometimes they can turn into cancerous moles as the person grows.
4. Halo nevi: A halo nevus comes with a white ring around it, which gives the mole the name. The skin around the mole loses its pigmentation and appears as a white round patch. But once the mole eventually fades away, the skin retains its actual color. These moles are benign and do not require any treatment except for cosmetic reasons.
5. Junctional melanocytic nevi: These moles occur from an accumulation of melanocytes at the junction of the dermis and epidermis layers. These are usually round, raised or flat with dark pigmentation. These moles are acquired between childhood and early adulthood.
6. Intradermal nevi: The skin-colored moles effectively blend in with the skin complexion. These moles are developed during the late childhood or anytime during the adulthood and are benign.
