When should you be concerned?

Some skin lesions, like seborrhoeic keratosis, can easily be mistaken for cancerous growths like melanoma. To identify melanoma dermatologists use the ABCDE rule:

  • Asymmetry

  • Irregular Borders

  • Uneven distribution of Colour

  • Large (greater than 6mm) Diameter

  • Finally, pay attention to the Evolution of your moles - know what's normal for your skin and check it regularly for changes.


If you see one or more of these, make an appointment with your GP immediately.
