, also known as melanocytic nevus (plural: nevi) are small lesions in the skin. They are a collection of melanocytes. Melanocytes are melanin-producing cells. Melanin is a pigment which gives our skin its color. Moles are usually brownish, but some may be much darker, while others are skin-colored. They can be rough, flat, raised, and have hair coming out of them. They are generally round or oval, and have a smooth edge.
