There is an abnormal form of moles that is called dysplastic nevus. This form of mole is rather very rare. Those who have it can end up with cancer. Everything about this abnormal form of mole is different from the normal thing. The shape of this particular type of mole is rather different from the normal mole. It is also bigger than normal.
