Signs of Skin Cancer Not Always Easy to Spot, Experts Warn

We are familiar with the fact that the deadliest form of skin cancer, which is known as melanoma, arises when moles and freckles alter shape or size or when new ones appear.

But, what most of us do not know is that these moles can appear in the most unlikely spots on your body, including under your fingernails or between your toes.

It is very important to know the warning signs of melanoma and to understand the risk. Doctors and their assistants have created a simple acronym, ABCDE, to help protect you from this potentially deadly form of skin cancer.

When examining your moles and skin, you should remember the acronym ABCDE.

A stands for Asymmetrical. If the mole or freckle is not round and looks more like an amoeba, it could be an indication of melanoma.

B stands for Borders. If the mole’s borders cannot be easily seen or they are irregular, get it checked out by your doctor.

C stands for Color. Seeing different shades of color in the same mole is not good.

D stands for Dimension. If the moles are more than 6 mm in diameter, you should consult your doctor immediately.

E stands for Evolution. But, if your mole keeps changing in color or dimension, make sure you get it checked out.

Knowing all the warning signs of melanoma, could save your life. Watch the video below for even more information.
