What should I do if I am worried about my skin?
See a skin specialist as soon as possible.
Skin cancer and melanoma can almost always be treated successfully if found early, which is why it is important to check your skin for any signs of change and see a dermatologist if you have any concerns.
The beginning of each season is the perfect time to schedule an early-detection examination of your skin and your partner's skin. Just five minutes every three months could save your life.
Follow the Early Detection Self Examination guide below to check your skin, and your partner's skin, for signs of change.
If you do notice a change in a mole, spot or lesion on your skin, or a new mole, spot or lesion has appeared, you should organise to see a dermatologist as soon as possible.
