ABCDE's of Melanoma

We've talked about the ABCDE's of Melanoma before, but with this month being Melanoma Awareness Month we decided to refresh your memory and take a look at exactly what these letters mean.

These characteristics are used by dermatologists to classify melanoma. Look for these particular signs: Asymmetry, irregular Borders, more than one or uneven distribution of Color, or a large (greater than 6mm) Diameter, and Evolution of the mole. 

AXA PPP healthcare, a healthcare insurance firm, devised this video to help remember the ABCDE's. 

Take a look at your skin and thoroughly exam every mole and spot. Contact your dermatologist if you see something spacious.
