Know Your ABCs
Does the lesion have asymmetry (one half of the lesion does not match the other)?
Does the lesion have uneven edges or jagged borders?
Is the lesion more than one color (i.e. brown/black, blue/black, etc.)?
Is the lesion larger than 6 millimeters or the size of a pencil eraser?
Has the lesion become larger or changed shape or color over the past year?
If you answered yes to one or more of these questions, the lesion should be evaluated by a board-certified dermatologist. Monthly skin self-examinations and regular skin checks by a dermatologist are essential for the early detection of skin cancer.
