What are the signs and symptoms of cancerous moles?
First, look for any new moles. Second, look for changes in existing moles. These changes can be remembered by the ABCD-E rules.
The shape of the mole is not even in the 2 halves.
B – Border.
The edge of the mole is irregular.
C – Colour.
There may be different colours within a mole - pink, brown, black or white. In general, if a mole has 3 or more colours within, then it needs to be assessed by an expert. Any change in colour should also trigger a visit to the doctor.
D - Diameter.
Cancerous moles are usually bigger than 6mm in diameter. Also, any increase in size should be noted.
E – Expert.
If in any doubt, seek advice from your doctor. If your GP is concerned, then you will be referred to a dermatologist
