This Month's Health Tip:

    Know your ABCD's of skin cancer

    In addition to protecting your skin with sunscreen, protect yourself from skin cancer by examining any suspicious areas. Use the ABCD's of skin cancer as a guide. If you notice any of these changes, see your doctor:

    • Asymmetry. The mole (or other growth) has an unequal division of halves, with one side larger than the other
    • Border. The growth has an irregular, uneven edge.
    • Color. Color varies throughout the mole. Different colors include tan, brown, black, white, red and blue.
    • Diameter. The growth is larger than a pencil eraser.
