Check your skin regularly
- Asymmetry: One half is different than the other half.
- Border irregularity: The edges of the mole are uneven or blurred.
- Color: Having multiple colours in a mole can be a warning sign.
- Diameter: Melanomas are often over 1/4 inch (6mm) and can sometimes grow.
- Evolution: If your mole changes in colour, size or any characteristics, it’s wise to get it checked.
Looking after your skin is important. Specialists never say you need to avoid the sun completely, but just take care in how you act when it’s out and make sure you use common sense to protect yourself. As well as preventing against skin cancer, many dermatologists recommend using sun cream daily to protect against signs of ageing.
