Checking your skin regularly for possible Non-Melanoma (Basal/Squamous Cell Carcinoma) and Melanoma skin cancer is a great habit to get into. But remember that it is only a first step. Skin cancer is complicated and there are many risks. I’ll use myself as an example…
Granted, I am an outlier. My point is that when you look back over your entire life you may have more skin cancer risks than you think. U.V. radiation is cumulative.
If after checking your skin regularly you find something that looks suspicious go see a dermatologist who will check you carefully with a dermoscope. Even professionals need the right tools.

How to Identify SC
It’s important to closely examine your skin for any new or changing moles or growths, and to do so on a regular basis. When checking your body for SC, doctors advise the following ABCDE rule:
1) Asymmetry – Healthy moles should be round and symmetrical.
2) Border – A clearly defined border is common in healthy skin growths and should not be blurred or faded.
3) Color – Pay attention to the color of your moles. Any that contain several shades of black, brown, or blue should be examined by a dermatologist.
4) Diameter – Any moles larger than a ¼ inch in diameter may need to be looked at by a professional.
5) Evolving – If you have a mole or skin growth that is changing in shape, size, or color, make an appointment with a trained dermatologist immediately for further examination.
