(HealthDay News) -- If your child's mole changes frequently or otherwise looks suspicious, it's time to see a doctor.
The American Academy of Dermatology says these warning signs shouldn't be ignored:
- A mole that grows or changes quickly, or looks different from any other mole.
- A mole that is dome-shaped, has an irregular border or is different colors.
- A mole that bleeds or looks like an open sore.
- Having 50 or more moles.
- Having a large mole.
