Skin Cancer is a Silent Killer

Moles on the skin are usually harmless – but not always!

Melanoma is the deadliest form of skin cancer. It is vital to catch it as early as possible.

You are at a higher risk if you have more than 100 moles.

Self-exams can help you identify potential skin cancers early, when they can almost always be completely cured. As a general rule, when looking for suspicious moles, take note of any new moles or growths, and any existing growths that begin to grow or change significantly. Lesions that change, bleed, itch or don’t heal are also alarm signals.

To make detecting Melanoma easier, physicians have developed the ABCDE strategy.
