5 Skin Cancer Warning Signs In Moles

Moles can change over time. It’s important to know what changes could be a sign of skin cancer.

Here’s what you should look for.

Asymmetry — If an imaginary line is drawn though the mole, the halves do not match.

Border — Irregular, uneven borders.

Color — Moles that have several colors or become lighter or darker.

Diameter — Moles larger than the size of a pencil eraser.

Evolving — Moles that itch or bleed, shrink or grow, change color, or have portions that are elevated; or a new growth on the skin.
