Hello,

Moles generally grow when the melanocytes grow in clusters. It also occurs when there are hormonal changes going on. Vitamin B12 deficiency may cause skin lesions. Take vitamin B6 and B12 supplements. You are suggested to get clinically examined by a GP or a dermatologist. Get required tests done to rule out cancer and confirm if its warts or moles.

You will be treated accordingly. Do not remove the moles by yourself with pastes or removers. Never try to shave it off, never tattoo it. Mole removal should always be done by a dermatologist or a surgeon.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Nupur K., General & Family Physician
