The ABCDE check is a useful general guide when examining your own skin; if a mole shows any of these features, you should get it reviewed by a dermatologist as soon as possible:
Asymmetry – one half of the mole is different from the other
Border – irregular, scalloped or poorly defined edge
Colour – uneven colour, or variable colours within a mole
Diameter – mole is bigger than 6mm in size
Evolving – mole is changing in its size, shape or colour
Even if you don’t spot any of the above signs, it remains important to stay on top of your skin health by scheduling regular mole checks with an expert dermatologist, such as Dr Anjali, who also offers various advanced mole removal treatments.
