SKIN CANCER – FAQs

Have you had a professional skin check recently? A skin-cancer screening is recommended every 12 months.

The A-B-C-D-E of Moles

Please inform us if one of your moles shows any of the following characteristics:

  • Asymmetry: irregular shape
  • Borders: blurred, fringed, jagged
  • Colour: irregular colour, e.g., dark brown, black brown, reddish, grey-white areas
  • Diameter: Bigger than 5 millimeters
  • Elevation: uneven surface
  • Evolution: changes in the mole

Am I a high-risk patient?

If you can answer “YES” to any of these questions, please book in for a skin check and consultation:

  • Do you have fair skin that is sensitive to sunlight?
  • Do you have a particularly large number of moles?
  • Do you have large congenital nevi?
  • Do you have atypical moles or moles that have recently changed?
  • Did you get sunburn as a child or adolescent?
  • Is there a history of skin cancer in your family?
  • Did you already have skin cancer?
  • Are you exposed to strong sunlight or UV rays at regular intervals?

How to Perform a Self Skin-Check? (Recommended every 3 months)

To perform a self-skin check, you will need a chair, hand-held mirror, full-length mirror, and good lighting. Follow these steps:

  1. Examine your body in a full-length mirror, paying extra attention to sun-exposed areas and hidden areas such as skin folds.
  2. Look at your underarms, forearms, and palms.
  3. Sit down and examine your legs, in between your toes, and the soles of your feet.
  4. Use a hand-held mirror to reflect off the full-length mirror to examine your neck, ears, and scalp.
  5. Similarly, use a hand-held mirror to check your back, buttocks, groin, genital area, and the back of your legs.

CAUTION

Immediate review with a Skin Cancer Doctor is recommended if you encounter the following:

  • Newly developed moles
  • Changes in colour, e.g., lighter, darker, new shades of an existing mole
  • Increase or decrease of size, thickness, or elevation of an existing mole
  • Bleeding moles
  • Changes in the surrounding area of moles, e.g., redness, white discoloration, swelling
  • Discomfort, e.g., itching, burning, or foreign body sensation
