Mind Your Moles

You can check your own skin for moles that look different. Learn the ABCDE rule to determine whether moles should be biopsied:
  • A: asymmetrical shape
  • B: border (the outer edges are uneven)
  • C: color (dark black or multiple colors)
  • D: diameter (greater than a pencil eraser)
  • E: evolving (change in size, shape, and color)
