Melanoma

Melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer, is usually pigmented and will resemble a mole. The American Academy of Dermatology uses the acronym ABCDE to recognize a melanoma—any time you notice a new mole or that an old mole looks different, look for these signs:

1. Asymmetry

2. Border

3. Color

4. Diameter

5. Evolution

Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) and squamous cell carcinoma (SCC)

Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is the most common type of skin cancer; SCC is the second most common.

Keep an eye out for:

1. A red scaly patch

2. A bump that won’t stop bleeding

3. A shiny bump

4. A pink growth

5. A scar-like spot

Researchers say that many people use sunscreen incorrectly. Sunscreen is one of the most basic skin protection products that exist, but according to new research it can be one of the most complicated. For example:

Did you know that a SPF 30 sunscreen does not provide twice as much protection as an SPF 15 sunscreen?

o SPF 15: 93% of the sun's UVB rays

o SPF 30: 97% of the sun's UVB rays

o SPF 50: 98% of the sun's UVB rays

• When selecting a sunscreen, make sure the label says broad spectrum which

means that the sunscreen can protect your skin from both types of harmful UV rays.

o UVA rays that cause skin aging (age spots, wrinkles, and sagging skin.

o UVB rays cause sunburns and other skin health problems.

A = Asymmetry: One part of a mole or birthmark doesn’t match the other.

B = Border: The edges are irregular, ragged, notched, or blurred.

C = Color: The color is not the same all over and may include shades of brown or black, sometimes with patches of pink, red, white, or blue.

D = Diameter: The spot is larger than ¼ inch across – about the size of a pencil eraser.

E = Evolving: The mole is changing in size, shape, or color.
