Skin Cancer/Mole/Lesion Removal
Knowing your ABC’s could save your life! Check your skin regularly for anything that may resemble skin cancer. Changes such as a new, recent growth, a sore that simply will not heal over time or a bleeding mole are all signs of concern. Check your moles closely – even those that do not bleed – along with your birthmarks and other areas of the skin for the A-B-C’s and the D-E’S, too!
Do you have an area that:
A = asymmetry (one half of the growth looks different from the other half)?
B = borders that are irregular?
C = color changes or more than one color?
D = diameter greater than the size of a pencil eraser?
E = evolving, meaning changes in size, shape, symptoms (itching, tenderness), surface (especially bleeding), or shades of color?
If you are concerned about an area, don’t wait to get it evaluated. Most often, skin cancer is not painful so think that there isn’t any harm since their isn’t any pain.
