PDF | 3.33 MB
In order to detect any changes in the skin and possible early signs of skin cancer, everyone should check their moles once a month. In case of any changes in the moles, a checkup by the family doctor is recommended. Marco shows you how to check your moles correctly in the video.
Check your moles using the ABCDE rule:
Does the mole have an irregular shape?
Are the edges of the mole irregular or blurred?
Does the mole vary in colour?
Is the diameter of the mole greater than 5 millimetres?
Has the mole changed in size, colour or shape since you last checked?
Do you have the impression that your mole has changed since the last self-examination? Then make an appointment with your family doctor and have the mole checked by a health professional.
