Skin self-exams are very important if you’re at risk for skin cancer. Get to know the pattern of moles, blemishes, freckles and other marks on your skin. Any new moles or changes in existing moles should be checked by your healthcare provider right away.
The best time to do a skin self-exam is after a shower or bath. It’s important to look for changes when you do the self-exam. Do the exam the same way each time so you don’t miss any part of your body. If needed, ask someone for help when checking your skin. This can help with hard-to-see areas like your back and scalp.
