How Should I Examine My Skin For Moles?

–        Perform self-examination of the skin every month. It is best if you examine your skin after a bath or shower while your skin is still wet.

–        Use a full-length mirror, as well as a hand mirror for a clear and closer view. Ask a family member for help, for the more difficult sites like your back.

–        Examine yourself the same way every month to avoid missing any areas. Start from your head and work your way down. See all areas of your body including the front, back, and sides of each area and your fingernails and toenails. Also check the hidden areas between your finger and toes, the soles of your feet, and the back of your knees.

–        Don’t forget to check your scalp and neck thoroughly for moles.

–        Keep track of all the moles on the body and what they look like. Take a photo with a ruler on it and date it to help you keep track of them. This way you will notice if the moles change. If they change in color or shape or size or border etc or if you develop a sore that does not heal, better see a dermatologist. Also, have your dermatologist examine any new moles that are suspicious.

What To Look For When Examining The Moles?

  • –        Asymmetry: one half of  mole does not match the other half.
  • –        Border: border or edges of the mole are blurred, ragged or irregular.

You should always be suspicious when a new model develops after the age of thirty. Most of the growth that appears after the age of 30 is harmless, age-associated growth, rather than moles. If you notice new growth, you should see your dermatologist. He or she will examine the growth and will perform a biopsy, if indicated.
