Skin cancer is the most commonly occurring cancer in the United States, and Melanoma is the most serious form of this disease. The good news is that it is highly treatable when detected early.
These ABCDEs of melanoma detection will help you to determine if you need to be screened or not:
Asymmetry – One half of the mole does not match the other half.
Border – The borders of the mole are irregular, ragged, blurred, or notched.
Color – The color of the mole is nor the same throughout. There may be different shades of tan, brown, black, red, blue, or white.
Diameter – The mole is larger than 6 millimeters (about ¼ inch, roughly the size of a pencil eraser).
Evolution – The mole has been growing or changed its shape or color.
