How Do You Detect Skin Cancer?

Early detection is key to the successful treatment of skin cancers. Become familiar with the
moles, lesions, and spots on your skin and perform regular skin self-exams from head to toe
once a month to check for any changes in your skin. Visit your physician or dermatologist for a
complete body skin exam at least once per year.

What Does Skin Cancer Look Like?

Skin cancers will look different from one person to another because of variations in skin tone, tumor size and location, and skin cancer type.  Often, skin cancer presents itself as a change in your skin’s appearance—a spot, mole, mark, or lesion that has newly appeared on your skin or one that has been on your skin but recently changed in appearance.
