Reduce your risk - Check your skin

You have the power to keep your skin safe. Just check your moles once a month. It’s as easy as A.B.C.D.

  • Asymmetry – is one half of the mole different from the other?
  • Border – is the outline of the mole uneven and irregular?
  • Colour – is the mole a different colour to other moles on your body?
  • Dimensions – is the mole growing outwards, upwards, or both?

Millions of people like you in the UK regularly check themselves for signs of cancer. It’s better to be safe than sorry.
