Remember your ABCDE’s when detecting skin cancer:
Most melanomas are asymmetrical; a line through the middle would not create matching halves. Common moles are round and symmetrical.
The borders of melanomas are often uneven and may have scalloped or notched edges. Common moles have smoother more even borders.
Varied shades of brown, tan, or black are often the first sign of Melanoma. As melanomas progress, the colors red, white, and blue may appear. Common moles are usually a single shade of brown.
Early melanomas tend to grow larger than common moles; generally to at least the size of a pencil eraser (6mm). However, they may be smaller.
Any evolution (change) in size, shape, color, elevation, or another trait, or a new symptom such as bleeding, itching, or crusting points to danger.
