HOW TO CHECK your skin.

The sooner a skin cancer is identified and treated, the better your
chance of avoiding surgery or, in the case of a serious melanoma or
other skin cancer, potential disfigurement or even death.

  • Skin cancers seldom hurt and are much more frequently seen than felt
  • Get to know your skin so that you can easily identify any changes
  • Undress completely, make sure you have good light, use a mirror
    and/or get someone to help you to check hard to see spots
  • Make sure you check your entire body, including soles of the feet,
    between fingers and toes and under nails
  • If in doubt, get it checked out!

CONSULT YOUR DOCTOR IMMEDIATELY

    patchy or multi-shaded
  • If an existing mole is getting bigger
    or a new mole is growing quickly
  • If a mole starts to itch, gets painful,
    starts bleeding, gets crusty or inflamed
