Melanoma Monday

Yes, that’s right. Today is Melanoma Monday and that means it’s time for a reminder to check yourself for moles and schedule an appointment if you notice anything that doesn’t look right.

Dysplastic Nevi

I had moles that turned out to be dysplastic nevi removed a couple of years ago after going in for a checkup. Since then I’ve been back several times, and each time have had moles removed. Fortunately no more of the bad ones since then. Thank you God for that!

So how do you check yourself and what should you be looking for? Click here for tips on how to perform a self exam, and you can also download a body mole map to document the occasion.

Skin cancer is preventable. The first line of defense starts with you!

    1. Going through posts and I see that no reply was given to your comment, here. Please forgive me! Hope you continue to take good care of yourself. I have an appointment coming up soon for another removal. We have to stay vigilant with this stuff, it seems. Have a good day!
