Know the ABCDEs of Melanoma Detection
The Melanoma Program medical experts recommend that you examine your skin monthly for signs of cancerous moles. If you notice any of the following warning signs, see your doctor, or call the Melanoma Program at 1-800-973-MOLE to speak to our dedicated melanoma nurse navigator.
Be aware that not all moles with these characteristics are melanomas. Likewise, some melanomas do not have any of these characteristics, and may be pink or white or not have any brown color at all. The most important warning sign for a melanoma is a change in the size, shape or color of a spot on your skin, or a new spot.
