Moles are classified into two, Congenital Melanocytic Naevi and Acquired Melanocytic Naevi. If the moles appear before or within six months of birth, they are Congenital Melanocytic Naevi, while Acquired Melanocytic Naevi appear after one year of birth. They can either be a result of the aggregation of blood vessels, hemangiomas, or keratosis (benign or precancerous spots) that appear after 30 years.
