Early detection leads to successful treatment of skin cancers
Early detection of skin cancers provides the best chance of successful treatment and survival.
Despite all of the skin cancer warnings, the reality is most people simply forget to do regular self-examinations on their skin. This makes tracking changes to moles, freckles and spots increasingly difficult and it increases the risk of letting a deadly melanoma go unnoticed.
However, it is important to know what to look for on your skin. Check your skin once a month for the following signs of change;
- New spots or changing spots
- Non healing sores
- Bleeding or persisting itching
- Spot differs from around it
- A mole or freckle that is new or has changed in size, shape or colour
- A persistent inflamed, itching, or scaly sore, or one that recurs
Even if you notice only one of the symptoms listed, you should report this to your Doctor within a week.
