Check Your Partner’s Skin, Check Yourself
Did you know??? Skin cancer is highly preventable. It’s also highly curable when detected early. Yet, it’s estimated less than one-third of Americans examine their skin for melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer. Plus, more than half of Americans don’t know what to look for when it comes to melanoma.

As your partners in health, the dermatology team hopes you’re already on a regular schedule of skin checks. When you can’t be at the office, we recommend checking your skin at home. Remember: “Check your partner. Check yourself.” You may notice anomalies on a loved one that they otherwise wouldn’t be able to see, even with monthly examinations at home. Think of your “ABCDE’s” when checking skin:
  • A - Asymmetrical spots
  • B - Borders that aren’t clearly defined
  • C - Colors that are varied, such as black and tan growth
  • D - Diameter of more than 6 millimeters, about the size of a pencil eraser
  • E - Evolving shapes, sizes, colors, or other changes like sudden itching
If you’re confused about what to look for, just ask! And when in doubt about any changes, call immediately. Don’t wait for your next prescheduled appointment.
