The skin is the largest organ and it takes a real hammering to be more correct. It sustains welts, blisters, wounds, and cuts, but our skin restores and heals itself up nicely and keeps us safe and healthy.

But despite that fact, you should inspect your skin head-to-toe once a month throughout the year, watching for any wary lesions. Self-exams can help you recognize potential skin tumors early, when doctors are able to cure them completely.

Things like moles, freckles, and birthmarks perhaps don’t seem like a big thing and mostly they aren’t. But what they can be, however, indicators of something going wrong. And it’s very vital to know and decide whether or not your mole is something you need to worry about or not.

Here are the skin cancer moles ABCDEs.

1 A is for Asymmetry

You can tell a lot by just looking at the shape of the mole on your body. Whether it is circular, oval or spherical, shapes tells lots of things. If the moles are cancerous, then there are 2 types benign and malignant.

The benign mole is not asymmetrical in shape. That means that if you draw a line passing through the middle, the two sides will match, meaning it is symmetrical. If you draw a line going through the middle of this mole, the two halves will not match each other and that means it is asymmetrical, a warning signs for melanoma. Cancerous moles are asymmetrical.

2 B is for Border

A benign mole has level, even borders, unlike melanomas. The borders of an early melanoma mole have a tendency to be uneven when it comes to the border. The edges of such moles may appear to have some pattern on them or have notches on them.

Moles that aren’t cancerous tend to have smooth edges. Their shapes are often very evidently defined. Melanoma on the other hand often has indistinct and uneven borders. They often don’t have a clear shape.
