Hard to say: There are many kinds of pigmented lesions that are called moles. Most are absolutely benign, so i can't give a time frame. There are estimates of how long it takes different types of early melanomas to become invasive, but that's a long answer. The best thing to do is to see your doctor and have a skin check. Tell them about any moles that worry you, so that you can be relieved. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

It takes time: Cancer often remains localized for a finite period of time. The whole process takes weeks to months to evolve.

Many skin conditions are labeled as moles but they may not be melanoma precursors or moles, that can become a melanoma. You should go see a dermatologist when in doubt. ...Read more

My son has 3mm mole not round shape with black colour and indian...in right side scalp. How long does it take to heal after surgical remove of mole.
Depends on method: Moles can be removed by shave or saucerization and the wound is allowed to heal, sort of like a scraped knee. Another method is to cut deeper and then close the wound with stitiches. With the shave/saucer method it can take several days to up to a month to heal. With stitches, they are usually removed 10-14 days after removal. In either case, it takes about a year for scar to get to its best. ...Read more
Depends: First, it depends how large the mole is. Next, it depends on how it is removed (shaved from the surface of the skin or punch biopsy or excised). Was it cauterized or were sutures used? What part of the body is the mole located? If it is small and shave removed, it could heal in two weeks. If it is large, excised and on the lower leg, it could take as long as 2 months. ...Read more

It's moot: If a mole is changing, or shows any sign of being a melanoma, you need to make an appointment and be seen now. I would not accept a waiting period of more than two weeks, and would try to be seen at once. Progression from a benign-looking mole into a lesion capable of metastasizing is known to take as little as a few months. Get seen now. ...Read more
