  • Scalp
    Use a hairdryer to inspect every region of your scalp. For the back of your head, use mirrors to get a proper view. You can also ask a friend or a family member to help you.
  • Back
    Stand in front of a full-length mirror, use a hand mirror to check the back of your neck, your shoulders, upper and lower back. Also have a look at your buttocks.
  • Last
    but not least
    Use a mirror to check your genital area and the cleft of the buttocks.
  • Legs
    Sit down and straighten your legs one after the other, resting your feet on a stool. Check the sides, the front and the back of your legs, using a mirror to get a good view. Have a look at your thighs, knees, calfs and ankles. Don't forget to check your feet, including between the toes and underneath the nails. Finish by checking the soles of your feet and your heels.
  • Torso
    Check your neck and your chest. Women should check underneath their breasts.
  • Face
    Pay close attention to your whole face, especially the nose and nostrils, the lips, inside the mouth and both sides of the ears.
  • Arms
    Facing a full-length mirror, start with the elbows. Then check the sides of your arms and forearms.

  • as ASYMMETRY
    \\SRV-PUBLIC\Applications\Site-LRP-Inter\Deploy\Resources\SkinChecker3\images-dyn\v_bubble-a.jpgBenignMalignant

    A for asymmetry

    This benign mole is not asymmetrical. If you draw a line through the middle, the two sides will match, meaning it is symmetrical. If you draw a line through this mole, the two halves will not match, meaning it is asymmetrical, a warning sign for melanoma.

  • as BORDERS
    \\SRV-PUBLIC\Applications\Site-LRP-Inter\Deploy\Resources\SkinChecker3\images-dyn\v_bubble-b.jpgBenignMalignant

    B for borders

    A benign mole has smooth, even borders, unlike melanomas. The borders of an early melanoma tend to be uneven. The edges may be scalloped or notched.

  • as COLOR
    \\SRV-PUBLIC\Applications\Site-LRP-Inter\Deploy\Resources\SkinChecker3\images-dyn\v_bubble-c.jpgBenignMalignant

    C for color

    Most benign moles are all one color - often a single shade of brown. Having a variety of colors is another warning signal. A number of different shades of brown, tan or black could appear. A melanoma may also become red, white or blue.

  • as DIAMETER
    \\SRV-PUBLIC\Applications\Site-LRP-Inter\Deploy\Resources\SkinChecker3\images-dyn\v_bubble-d.jpgBenignMalignant

    D for diameter

    Benign moles usually have a smaller diameter than malignant ones. Melanomas usually are larger in diameter than the eraser on your pencil tip (1/4 inch or 6mm), but they may sometimes be smaller when first detected.

  • as EVOLUTION
    \\SRV-PUBLIC\Applications\Site-LRP-Inter\Deploy\Resources\SkinChecker3\images-dyn\v_bubble-e.jpgBenignMalignant

    E for evolution

    Common, benign moles look the same over time. Be on the alert when a mole starts to evolve or change in any way. When a mole is evolving, see a doctor. Any change - in size, shape, color, elevation, or another trait, or any new symptom such as bleeding, itching or crusting - points to danger.
