Knowing the signs of skin cancer is just as important as early detection. Here's a look at what to watch out for.
The ABCD signs of Melanoma;
- A- Asymmetry: One half doesn't match the other
- B- Border: Irregular and scalloped
- C- Color: Varied from one area to another
- D- Diameter: Larger than the size of a pencil eraser
But according to doctors, melanoma isn't the only form of skin cancer to watch out for. There's also Basal cell carcinoma, sometimes characterized by a red patch of skin.
Basal cell carcinoma can be removed surgically, but doctors strongly suggest getting checked before it can get worse.
