Moles are common landmarks found on your body.Â Throughout history, they have been topics of discussion of so many people. Some cultures even have specific meanings for their locations on the face and body. Centuries ago, they have been seen as abnormal growths usually associated with witches. But these days, celebritiesâ€”Marilyn Monroe, Cindy Crawford, and Madonnaâ€”have been known for their moles. Moles are now indicators of lower risks of age-related diseases. The reason why moles are colored is because of the melanocytes present at the bottom of the epidermis. They can be of different colors, numbers, and sizes. On the average, a person can have about fifty body moles.
