In brief: Changes

When a mole changes quickly or looks different than expected it is called unusual.
Moles are extremely common and most people have them. Unusual is a broad term and can mean different things to different people! i always warned my patients that any mole changing should be seen by your pcp. Any new mole appearing quickly is dangerous until seen by your pcp. Don' take chance on it being malignant.
