May is Melanoma Skin Cancer Awareness Month.
Know your skin!
To increase people’s chances of spotting skin cancer early, the American Academy of Dermatology recommends everyone learn the ABCDE rule, which outlines the warning signs of melanoma:
A – is for Asymmetry: One half of the mole does not match the other half.
B – is for Border irregularity: The edges are ragged, notched or blurred.
C – is for Color that varies from one area to another.
D – is for Diameter: While melanomas are usually greater than 6mm (the size of a pencil eraser) when diagnosed, they can be smaller.
E – is for Evolving: A mole or skin lesion that looks different from the rest or is changing in size, shape or color.
