How do I check to see if I have skin cancer?
Here is a simple guide to help you recognise the early signs of cancer.
SCAN you skin. Look for a spot or a mole that is:
SORE – Scaly, itchy, bleeding, tender and doesn’t heal within 6 weeks
CHANGING – Changing in size, shape, colour or texture
ABNORMAL – Looks different, feels different, or stands out when compared to your other spots and moles.
NEW – Has appeared on your skin recently. Any new moles or spots should be checked, especially if you are over 40.
The more of the above features a spot or mole has, the more concerning it may be. Get it checked by a doctor.
