Harmless Beauty Mark or Melanoma? A Painless New Way to Find Out
Date:1/8/2014

BOSTON, Jan. 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Moles and freckles are common among fair-skinned people, and if they're in the right spot on the face, a mark or imperfection can look endearing and even sexy. Thanks to such "molerific" celebrities as Cindy Crawford, Goldie Hawn, Eva Mendes and Marilyn Monroe, moles—especially around the lips—have long been associated with beauty.
