How To Tell If A Mole Is Cancerous

During your first skin check, make sure you note where your moles are located along with the size and shape of each of your moles so you can track any changes. One way to self-evaluate your moles is by remembering the acronym “ABCDE”.

Mole Changes: What Are The Main Indicators?

“The shape, height and surface texture of your mole are the most important indicators”

You need to pay attention to the shape, height and surface texture of your moles on a monthly basis. Moles are usually symmetrical and if you notice that a certain mole is evolving, growing or asymmetrical, it might be time to get your mole checked by a dermatologist. If anything seems unusual, make sure you get it checked by a certified dermatologist as they will be able to spot reasons for concern easier than you.
