Common Signs of Melanoma:
Melanoma is a very serious form of skin cancer that can be aggressive and should be treated as soon as possible. Your dermatologists can help you identify signs of skin cancer, which will help you understand when you should be seen for a routine check or any new suspicious lesions.
Melanoma can occur almost anywhere on your body, even in areas that may not be commonly exposed to the sun. It’s important to always protect your skin and check your current moles for any irregularities. If you notice changes in an existing mole, such as a change in color, bleeding, or an irregular border, you should visit your dermatologist immediately for an examination. If you notice a mole that is pigmented, new, or has changed, you should also be sure to contact your dermatologist as soon as possible.
When checking your moles, you should be aware of changes in shape, irregular borders, colors, or a mole that changes drastically over time. You should also be aware of itchiness, scaliness, or oozing from the mole.
Keep an eye on your skin and be aware of signs of skin cancer!
