How Our Free Mole Check Guide Helps You

Melanoma is a type of skin cancer and is one of the most common cancers in the UK. In fact, its prevalence has more than double in the last 30 years. Whilst survival rates are high, developing skin cancer is still a serious condition.

Almost 9 in 10 cases of melonoma can be prevented through proper sun safety and awareness. Part of that awareness is knowing what cancerous moles look like so that you can get any problems checked out by your doctor straight away. Knowing where to look on your body and what to look for is absolutely crucial to early detection, so we’ve put together a handy guide to help you know what to do.

Are Moles Cancerous?

Moles are fairly common and are usually nothing to worry about, unless they change size, shape or colour.

According the NHS, it’s normal for:

  • Babies to be born with moles.
  • New moles to appear – especially in children and teenagers.
  • Moles to fade or disappear as you get older.
  • Moles to get slightly darker during pregnancy.

It’s usually when moles start to change for no clear reason that they can become a problem – which is why it’s so important to check your skin regularly. Download our free guide to find out exactly where you should be checking.

If you’re concerned about any moles or marks on your skin, your GP can check them out for you.

What do Cancerous Moles Look Like?

When on the lookout for cancerous moles, there a few different factors to consider about their appearance. You can remember these as ABCDE:

  • Asymmetry – moles should be symmetrical.
  • Border – they should have a clear border/edge.
  • Colour – they should usually be one colour.
  • Diameter – they should stay the same size.
  • Evolution – they shouldn’t change over time.
That being said, if you’re concerned about any mole or mark on your body, you should speak to your GP. They can check it out in just a few minutes, and decide whether any further investigation is needed.
