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
