Do you know what to look for when checking your skin for skin cancer?

It's crucial to regularly check your skin for signs of skin cancer. The main signs to look for include:


  • New or changing moles

  • A clear, red, brown, or black growth that gets larger

  • Any growth that bleeds or itches

  • Open sores, scabs, or pimples that don't go away


An easy way to remember what to look for is to use the ABCDEs of skin cancer:


A- Asymmetry: Do the sides of the spot you're examining match?

B- Border: Are the borders uneven? C- Color: Are there two or more colors?

D- Diameter: Is the spot larger than 1/4 inch?

E- Evolution: Has it changed in size, shape, color, or symptoms?


If you answer "yes" to any of these questions, you should see a dermatologist. It is recommended to get a full body skin exam at least once a year. Call any of our six locations to schedule your appointment today!
