The actual number of moles increases risk, but the size of the moles needs be considered. Those with 10 larger moles of over 1 cm (0.4 in.) are at more risk than those with a higher number (50-99) of smaller moles.

Most moles are benign, but atypical moles (dysplastic nevi) may develop into malignant melanoma, a potentially fatal form of skin cancer. Atypical moles are usually hereditary.

If you increase the number of molecules (moles), you increase the number of collisions between these molecules and the inside walls of their container. This in turn increases the pressure.

Most of the pigmented lesions are moles. Other benign pigmented lesions are haemangioma, dermatofibroma, solar keratoses. Malignant pigmented lesions are malignant melanoma, Bowen's disease, and basal cell carcinoma. Moles should be carefully watched for change in size, colour, ulceration, bleeding and crusting and avoid exposure to too much Sunlight and the use of sun lotion with UVA / UVB protection.

Yes, dogs can have moles, as can other animals. A mole can be melanoma cancer in dogs, but don't be alarmed because that is rare. Moles are very common.

Moles do not cause cancer, however, certain cancers, such as melanoma, can present with moles. Most moles aren't cancerous, but if you feel concerned, you should see a doctor, as the cancerous moles are very distinguishable from the regular moles.

Please, show it to a dermatologist as soon as possible! Malignant Melanoma could arise from moles. Malignant Melanoma is a type of skin cancer, which does not stay just in the skin, but could spread to other parts/organs of the body. When a mole changes in size, colour, surface, ulcerate, or bleed, it is a wise move to show it to a doctor (preferable a dermatologist), just to be sure.

Other things being equal, in a gas, an increase in pressure can be related to:A decrease in volumeAn increase in the amount of gas (the number of moles)An increase in temperature

Some of the melanoma symptoms that your doctor would be looking for is the change in any mole. If it has grown quickly and has an irregular shape, if the colour is not constant throughout the mole and it is different to other moles you might have, he will be inclined to think that you have melanoma.

Melanoma is a serious skin cancer with a high mortality rate if left untreated. If caught early, however, the prognosis is extremely good. Melanomas in the early stages can usually be completely removed with a simple visit to a dermatologist's office. It is very important for everyone to be on the lookout for early melanoma symptoms. It is better to be safe than sorry, and people who think they may have early melanoma symptoms should immediately schedule an appointment with a dermatologist. The symptoms of melanoma are not difficult to spot with the proper attention. To spot melanoma signs early, people should regularly examine their moles. A healthy mole tends to be smaller than an eraser tip, even in color, even in border, symmetrical, and stable. Moles that do not display these characteristics may be potential melanoma sites. Melanoma symptoms often first appear as changes to a current mole. It may be a potential sign of cancer if a mole suddenly starts growing rapidly. If a mole changes color or shape, it could also be a sign of melanoma. If new moles start popping up around a strange-looking mole, these moles could be dangerous satellite moles. Such moles signify that a melanoma may be spreading. Melanoma symptoms also often appear as brand new moles. A melanoma will almost always have an atypical appearance. It will likely be highly asymmetrical. It may have an irregular border. It may have many colors instead of just one color. It may be very large. If a mole is larger than six millimeters in diameter, it should be examined by a dermatologist. Melanoma does not just occur on skin areas that are exposed to sunlight. People should also check for atypical moles on the soles of their feet, the palms of their hands, and on other areas that are not commonly exposed to the sun. While melanoma symptoms are often painless, some melanomas might ooze or itch. Although people with pale skin and an abundance of moles are at high risk for melanoma, the cancer can strike people of all ethnic groups. For this reason, everyone should visit a dermatologist regularly for a mole check.

About 10 % of people who have had a primary melanoma will end up developing a second primary melanoma at some point in their life. Melanoma does not usually show symptoms but itching of a mole or lesion is reported by some patients. The signs of a melanoma are a mole that has changed. Change can be asymmetry of the lesion (one side does not match the other), Borders change (the edges look fuzzy or scalloped), Color change (mole has turned dark black, red, purple), and Difference (any mole that changes and looks different than before or different than your other moles). This is know as the A B C D 's of melanoma. Also melanoma can form on skin that has not previously had a mole associated with it.

Moles are typically either genetic or environmental. If you've been out in the sun too much, it might be melanoma. Moles are typically not associated with pregnancy. Consult your doctor if you're concerned about the mole.

Melanoma is the most dangerous of all deadly skin cancers. It is 100% curable though if you get your skin and moles (most common form of melanoma) checked by your dermatologist regulary.

Mole fraction(x) is the ratio of number of moles of one to the total number of moles. x = Number of moles of one component / Total number of moles

Assuming the volume is not allowed to change, the temperature will increase.

Melanoma is a type of skin cancer that grows from pigment cells. They often occur in moles or other parts of the skin. Nonmelanoma comes from any portions of the skin except pigment cells.

There are several symptoms of melanoma cancer. Some of these include: unusual moles and changes in the unusual mole, itching, oozing, or bleeding of the mole. Hidden melanomas are more common in darker people.

By dividing the total mass of the number of moles that you are considering by number of moles; the result is the molar mass.

Can cancer can come in many forms, can be malignant, can be a basil cell carcinoma which is not. Can be removed if it is a malignant cancer then chances are that when it is removed it can come back. Moles can be cancerous. People have them biopsied and removed to check. It is not painful.

There is no direction in number of moles, so it is scalar.

No, compression does not affect the number of moles.

AnswerIn short, yes! Melanoma is one of the few skin cancers that speads vertically (down into the skin). It easily spreads to other areas of the body. Thus, it should always be treated.Actually Bob Marley died from Malignant Melanoma which had metastasized (spread). The original mole he found was under his big toe. Malignant Melanoma affects one in fifty people in the U.K, It kills one in four of its victims and the incidence rate is doubling every ten years. You dont have to be a sun worshipper or use tanning salons to become a victim to this evil, aggressive cancer. Please look at this site for further accurate information on Malignant Melanoma: is the most serious type of skin cancer. It begins in skin cells called melanocytes.Melanocytes are the cells that make melanin, which gives skin its color. Melanin also protects the deeper layers of the skin from the sun's harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays.When people spend time in the sunlight, the melanocytes make more melanin and cause the skin to tan. This also happens when skin is exposed to other forms of ultraviolet light (such as in a tanning booth). If the skin receives too much ultraviolet light, the melanocytes may begin to grow abnormally and become cancerous. This condition is called melanoma.How and where does melanoma appear?The first sign of melanoma is often a change in the size, shape, or color of a mole. But melanoma can also appear on the body as a new mole.In men, melanoma most often shows up:on the upper body, between the shoulders and hipson the head and neckIn women, melanoma often develops on the lower legs.In dark-skinned people, melanoma often appears:under the fingernails or toenailson the palms of the handson the soles of the feetAlthough these are the most common places on the body for melanomas to appear, they can appear anywhere on the skin. That's why it is important to always examine your skin to check for new moles or changes in moles.With early diagnosis and treatment, the chances of recovery are very good.The chance of getting melanoma increases as you get older, but people of any age can get melanoma. In fact, melanoma is one of the most common cancers in young adults. Each year, more than 50,000 people in the U.S. learn that they have melanoma.Melanoma is a serious and sometimes life-threatening cancer. If melanoma is found and treated in its early stages, the chances of recovery are very good. If it is not found early, melanoma can grow deeper into the skin and spread to other parts of the body. This spread is called metastasis.Once melanoma has spread to other parts of the body beyond the skin, it is difficult to treat.» The Skin» Skin Cancer» What Causes Melanoma?» Signs of Melanoma» Risk FactorsGlossary Cancer A general term for more than 100 different diseases that involve the uncontrolled increase of abnormal new cells. These cells form tumors that can destroy surrounding tissue and spread throughout the body. Melanin A dark-brown to black pigment found in the skin, hair, and parts of the eyes. Melanocytes Pigment-producing cells located in the epidermis. Melanoma A highly malignant type of skin cancer that arises in melanocytes, the cells that produce pigment. Melanoma usually begins in a mole. Mole A cluster of melanocytes and surrounding supportive tissue that usually appears as a tan, brown, or flesh-colored spot on the skin. Also called a nevus.
