Do you know that moles can be a sign for melanoma (= skin cancer) ??
Melanoma usually start from a mole!
Let’s know how to distinguish between the normal, regular mole and the dangerous one; the cancerous.
We have to check for ABCD:
A: Asymmetric. Check for the symmetry. Try to draw an imaginary line, does it look symmetric or not?
B: Border. Check for the border, does it have even or uneven edges?
C: Color. Check for the color, does it have more than one shade?
D: Diameter. Check for the diameter, is it less than 6 mm or more?
