A is for Asymmetry

If you were to draw a line through the mole, would the two sides match?

If not, you should see a dermatologist.




B is for Border

Are the borders of your mole irregular, scalloped, or blurred?

If so, you should see a dermatologist.




C is for Color

Does the mole contain more than one color, or shades of tan, brown, black, blue, white, or red?

If yes, you should see a dermatologist.




D is for Diameter

Is the mole greater than 5mm in diameter (about the size of a pencil eraser)?

If yes, you should see a dermatologist.




E is for Evolving

Does the mole change in size, shape, color or even bleed?

If yes, you should see a dermatologist.
