Prevention of Moles (Nevis)
Our discovery, AGURZI, has also been effective in the prevention of Nevi (skin moles). Moles are common skin growths of clusters of myelinated cells. They are usually small and dark. Most moles are harmless. Most moles appear before the age of 20 and may range from 10 to 40 in number. As you age, you may develop more moles which start off as pimples or lesions. If you apply AGURZIL 3 times a day to the pimple or lesion, AGURZIL has been found effective in preventing the mole from forming. AGURZIL does not eliminate current moles.
Relationship Between Moles and Cancer
Occasionally, moles become cancerous. Unusual moles may indicate cancer or a melanoma. If you have any of the indicators below, see your doctor or dermatologist immediately. The following information comes from the Mayo Clinic:
The ABCDE guide can help you determine if a mole might be a melanoma or other skin cancers:
· A is for asymmetrical shape. One half is unlike the other half.
· B is for border. Look for moles with irregular, notched or scalloped borders.
· C is for color. Look for growths that have changed color, have many colors or have uneven color.
· D is for diameter. Look for new growth in a mole larger than 1/4 inch (about 6 millimeters).
· E is for evolving. Watch for moles that change in size, shape, color or height, especially if part or all of a mole turns black. Moles may also evolve to develop new signs and symptoms, such as itchiness or bleeding.
