SKIN EXAMS ARE AS EASY AS A-B-C

Reducing skin cancer risk starts with prevention: Avoid exposing your skin to ultraviolet rays between the sun’s peak hours of 10 am and 4 pm, wear sunscreen when going outside, never use a tanning bed, and stay hydrated. Next, be sure to perform regular self-checks to spot suspicious lesions. What makes a mole suspicious? Follow the ABCDEs.

Not asymmetrical mole

EXAMPLE MELANOMA

ASYMMETRY

Moles are typically symmetrical, which means the right side is basically a mirror image of the left. Cancer cells often grow in a way that causes asymmetry, so watch for lesions that are not generally round or are otherwise misshapen.

Undefined border mole

EXAMPLE MELANOMA

BORDER

A normal mole will have a distinct and well-defined border. Finding a lesion that has scalloped, notched, or “hazy” edges can indicate the presence of cancer cells and should prompt a closer examination by an experienced dermatologist.

Discoloured Mole

EXAMPLE MELANOMA

COLOR

While moles come in many colors, they are almost always uniform—meaning a brown mole is fully brown. Lesions that feature multiple colors are a concern, as are those that are especially dark, black, or an unexpected hue.

Larger mole

EXAMPLE MELANOMA

DIAMETER

The larger a mole is, the more suspicious it is—at least past a certain point. Single out anything bigger in diameter than a pencil eraser for scrutiny in case its size indicates that the lesion in cancerous.

Smaller mole

Evolving mole

EXAMPLE MELANOMA

EVOLVING

Cancer cells divide rapidly, which means that malignant moles often evolve in a way that other moles don’t. Changes may include size, shape, color, or all of the above. Also, be aware of moles that have evolved to be “ugly ducklings,” meaning they stand out from the rest.

Stable mole
