TYPE OF SKIN CANCERS
 
There are three types of skin cancers you should be aware of:

  • Melanoma – the least common but most dangerous affecting our young Australians
  • Basal Cell Carcinoma (BCC) – the most common but least dangerous
  • Squamous Cell Carcinoma (SCC) – somewhere in between the above two

The ABCD of melanoma detection can be a useful guide when checking your skin.

 

ABCD MELANOMA DETECTION GUIDE

Skin Cancer Clinic
Skin Cancer Clinic

A is for Asymmetry –
Look for spots that lack symmetry. That is, if a line was drawn through the middle, the two sides would not match up.

Skin Cancer Clinic

B is for Border –
A spot with a spreading or irregular edge (notched).

 

Skin Cancer Clinic

C is for Colour –
Blotchy spots with a number of colours such as black, blue, red, white and/or grey.

 

Skin Cancer Clinic

D is for Diameter –
Look for spots that are getting bigger.

These are some changes to look out for when checking your skin for signs of any cancer:

  • New moles.
  • Moles that increases in size.
  • An outline of a mole that becomes notched.
  • A spot that changes colour from brown to black or is varied.
  • A spot that becomes raised or develops a lump within it.
  • The surface of a mole becoming rough, scaly or ulcerated.
