Moles in Danville, CA

The dermatologists at Elite MD provide thorough mole evaluations for individuals in and around Danville, CA. Moles, typically clusters of pigmented skin cells, are common and vary in appearance, ranging from brown or black to raised or flat. During a mole check, we meticulously examine, measure, and record the details of your moles to ensure their benign nature and monitor for any signs of change that could indicate malignancy. While most moles are benign, it's crucial to stay vigilant. Changes in size, shape, color, texture, and symptoms like itching or bleeding warrant professional attention. If you have concerns about any of your moles or notice any alarming changes, it's important to consult with a physician promptly.

Usually, moles do not require treatment unless they become cancerous, questionable, or when they cause irritation, discomfort, or cosmetic issues. We might want to excise the mole(s) in these situations. In surgical excision, the region near the mole is numbed with a local anesthetic, and a scalpel or comparable device is utilized to remove the mole and a bit of the surrounding skin cells. The wound is then closed with stitches. From time to time, when the mole is at the surface level, a surgical shaving method may be utilized where the region is numbed, and a small blade is used to cut all around and under the mole. Stitches aren't required for this technique.

Dr. Sonia Badreshia-Bansal or a member of her team may advise you to keep a close watch on your moles for any alterations and to maintain a routine schedule for mole examinations. Familiarizing yourself with the ABCDE method makes it easier to identify potential warning signs of cancerous moles. Be mindful of these key characteristics when examining your moles:

  • Asymmetrical: They are not even or equal in dimension when cut in half
  • Borders: They have irregular or scalloped edges
  • Color: They start to change or have an abnormal color
  • Diameter: They're bigger than six millimeters in diameter
  • Evolves: They start to evolve (grow or change) in size, height, color, or shape


Their service is truly exceptional. I love their service and they treat me so special. The staff and everyone there really takes their time to work with each individual patient. This is why I keep coming back and I have been a patient with them for years now. Linda is the aesthetician and she was so amazing with her services. She has been in the business for over 40 years. The staff and customer service is the reason why I keep coming back!

I had my fillers done today with Dr Sonia Bansal. She was so gentle and made sure I was comfortable. I had my Marionette lines done, under eye hollows and lines around my mouth. I used Juvederm XC and Juvederm Volbella. When I left, the results were amazing!!! I can't wait to see the results in 2 weeks. I highly recommend Elite Md. The staff are super friendly as well.
