It’s a good idea to examine your skin head-to-toe once a month, looking for any suspicious lesions. Self-exams can help you identify potential skin cancers early, when they can almost always be completely cured. Remember to check for the ABCDEs of melanoma on any suspicious-looking moles or spots: Asymmetry, uneven Borders, inconsistent Color, a Diameter larger than the size of a pencil eraser and Evolution or change in size, shape, color or elevation.
