And what makes all these warts, moles, papillomas?

Usually formations on the skin are viral in nature. They are caused by the human papillomavirus, its varieties have been allocated more than 100. Some people are more susceptible to this virus, some less. Strongly affect its activation hormonal fluctuations in the body. So, birthmarks and warts often appear and grow in women during pregnancy and after childbirth, in men after the cessation of intense exercise. And those and other formations becomes more with age. So, if there are a lot of warts and papillomas, the doctor not only removes them, but also prescribes a comprehensive antiviral treatment.

Is it possible to touch a mole? Could this lead to cancer rebirth?

Indeed, if moles are constantly injured by clothes or decorations, if attempts are made to cut them off by themselves, then they can begin to grow and degenerate into a malignant tumor. Therefore, if something on the skin interferes with you all the time, rubs laundry, falls under the blade during shaving - contact your doctor as soon as possible. Such formations must be removed.

Warts are a skin disease characterized by small, non-inflammatory tumor formations. Warts are skin tumors ranging in size from a pinhead (1-2 mm) to 1 cm or more.

What are the types of warts?

Common warts are dense, painless nodules of a rounded shape (3-10 mm in diameter) with a rough surface. They are located on the rear of the hands, fingers, face, scalp. On the soles occur so-called plantar warts. They are usually painful and consist of bundles of filiform papillae, surrounded by a roller of powerful horny layers, resembling a corn. The occurrence of plantar warts contributes to the constant pressure and friction of shoes.

Flat (youthful, juvenile) warts are small (0.5-3 mm) nodules the color of normal skin or yellowish, round or polygonal with a smooth flattened surface, barely protruding above the level of the skin. They are usually located on the face and rear brushes. More often observed in young people, especially among schoolchildren. Another type of warts is genital warts (papillomas, nep. "Papilloma"). But that's another story. She is engaged in urologists, gynecologists and venereologists.

Method of removing warts in traditional medicine: pipetting drip onto each wart with a solution of glacial acetic acid and sulfuric acid.
You can also lubricate warts with castor oil. The method of removing warts I tested several times, by the way, the result was visible.

Removal of birthmarks

Удаление родинок
Birthmarks (moles) or pigmented nevi are benign skin lesions consisting of clusters of pigment cells (melanocytes). All birthmarks combine a characteristic color - from yellow-brown to black, the color is due to different concentrations of melanin. Moles are usually flat or slightly protruding above the skin. The surface of the birthmark can be smooth or rough, sometimes in the form of growths of irregular shape. Some moles are covered with hair.

A common mole is a benign accumulation of pigment cells that can appear on any part of the body and mucous membranes. As a rule, the mass appearance of moles in humans occurs during puberty. During life, the number of birthmarks in a person can vary significantly, increasing or almost fading away.

Birthmarks have always been surrounded by a mass of legends and rumors. Since ancient times, people have tried to understand why they appear, what they mean and whether they somehow influence the fate of a person. In some nations, the presence of large birthmarks on the human body was perceived as evidence of his chosenness and suitability to gods or higher powers. But more often, birthmarks were perceived as a symbol of communication with otherworldly forces or involvement in witchcraft and sorcery. Not for nothing, in the courts of the Inquisition, they always diligently examined the body of another victim for the presence of birthmarks, which, as a rule, were considered evidence of the defendant’s connection with the evil spirit. In those days, for the definition of large moles on the body even existed a widely used term - “the seal of Satan”.

Nowadays, attitudes towards moles have changed, they have not been given mystical properties for a long time. Most people get used to birthmarks on their bodies and stop paying attention to them. Some people even like the presence of small birthmarks, because the “successfully” birthmark on the face can give a woman a certain charm.

Unfortunately, moles are far from harmless. Scientists are still unable to unambiguously understand the causes and mechanisms for the conversion of a harmless nevus into a deadly melanoma. According to the World Health Organization, annually melanomas cause the death of almost 50 thousand people. On a global scale, the figure is not so great, but it is probably not voluntarily to be among those "chosen" people. Although some are among them simply because of their ignorance.

If no noticeable changes begin to occur with moles, it is simply impossible to recognize in advance the one that is to turn into melanoma. But there are signs that are simply obliged to make a person alert and seek advice from a dermatologist or a dermatologist-oncologist. In the “risk zone” there are moles that are constantly irritated or injured by clothes, shoes, belts, belts, while shaving or combing hair. It is these moles that have the greatest chance in time to degenerate into melanoma.

If the birthmark began to change, a visit to the doctor can not be postponed. What you should pay attention in the first place:
- the size of the mole changes, it began to increase markedly;
- the structure of the mole changes, areas of compaction, bumps, cracks, peeling, crusts appear on it;
- the birthmark color changes, it darkens or brightens, spots appear on it;
- the mole was inflamed, it began to bleed, or a reddish corolla appeared around it;
- in a mole, itching or burning is felt, touching it became painful.

Often, the rebirth of the usual nevus to melanoma contributes to the man himself. Often, from moles located on the face or open areas of the body, hairs are pulled out, which is a strong irritant for the birthmark. Attempts to discolor or remove a mole on their own, burning, cutting or somehow traumatizing, cause no less harm. Do not forget that the mole can be adversely affected by the excessive sunbathing, and in particular - the abuse of the solarium.

Those who treat moles on the body with real or ostentatious indifference, it is not superfluous to recall that melanoma, like other malignant tumors, is well treatable only at the initial stage of development. When metastases appear, treatment will become difficult, painful, expensive and, unfortunately, not always effective.

In recent years, various traditional healers have increasingly offered their help in removing moles or treating melanomas. The likelihood that they will be able to provide real assistance, as a rule, is not commensurate with the negative consequences that such “treatment” can bring. At best, the healer's patient receives scars and blemishes at the site of distant moles, at worst - neglected melanoma. I do not exclude that among the healers there may be real professionals, but you will agree that the probability of meeting them is extremely small.

I am a supporter of traditional medicine methods, but in cases of moles I recommend not to self-medicate, not to waste time and money on various healers, but to immediately consult a doctor. If necessary, a histological examination will be performed to ensure the quality of the mole, and the most effective option for its removal is selected. Recently, laser removal of birthmarks has been increasingly used, the advantage of which is relative painlessness, safety and efficacy. Moreover, with this method of removal, no traces remain on the skin, except in cases when moles of considerable size are removed. Naturally, during the rehabilitation period after the birthmark is removed, it is necessary to strictly follow the doctor’s instructions.

Birthmarks are not as harmless as it seems at first glance, so they should be taken seriously, especially since modern medicine can provide effective assistance, if, of course, you can apply for it promptly.
