It is currently estimated that one in five Americans will develop skin cancer in their lifetime. Make a skin exam a part of your healthy lifestyle plan!
Protect: The best way to prevent skin cancer is to protect your skin from sun/UV exposure and tanning bulbs. Protective clothing is always a great option, especially for young children or extended times in the sun.
Inspect: Practice identifying the ABCDEs (these are the features of melanoma – Asymmetry, Border irregularity, Color changes, Diameter/size changes, Evolution/any changes to the spot). Regularly examine your skin for suspicious pigmented spots.
Identify: Each type of skin cancer has its own unique look. Your dermatologist can help you learn the signs of potentially dangerous spots!
