Early Signs of Skin Cancer

One of the most common forms of cancer in the United States is melanoma, or skin cancer. Though you may think it is unthreatening, skin cancer can lead to death if not treated properly. Spartanburg Dermatology & Skin Surgery Clinic, P.C. can diagnose and treat this disease, but early detection is key.
Here are a few signs that point to skin cancer.

ABCDE of Moles

Asymmetry
One half of the mole or mark looks different than the other.
Border
The mole has notched, blurred or ragged edges.
Color
Are there varying shades of color, or different colors in the mole?
Diameter
The mole has a diameter larger than a pencil eraser.
Evolving
Does it change size, shape or color?


Other Warning Signs

  • Redness or swelling beyond a mole
  • A sore that won't heal
  • Skin discolorations
It’s important to know your skin so you can spot these signs early. If you have any questions about your skin, call your Spartanburg medical dermatologists as soon as possible!
