Look for danger signs in pigmented lesions of the skin. Consult your dermatologist immediately if any of your moles or pigmented spots exhibit:
|One half unlike the other half.|
|Irregular, scalloped or poorly defined border.|
|Varied from one area to another; shades of tan and brown, black; sometimes white, red or blue.|
|While melanomas are usually greater than
6mm (the size of a pencil eraser) when diagnosed, they can be smaller.
|A mole or skin lesion that looks different from the rest or is changing in size, shape or color.|
