Whether you are out in the sun 24/7 or only venture outside when it is necessary, it is important to have yourself regularly screened for skin cancer. The earlier this type of cancer is caught, the easier it can be to treat and get rid of. Even if you do not think you are at risk, it won’t hurt to be checked now and then. Since everyone’s medical history and lifestyle is so different, it is important to understand how often you should be checked.
Where you live or how often you go outside doesn’t matter much in some cases. If you are concerned about a new mole or spot on your skin, get it checked as soon as you are able. If your immediate relatives have had melanoma or you have a history of various pre-cancers, you should get screened at least once a year to keep on top of what’s happening with your body. The most common places for skin cancer to develop is the nose, temples, and ears, but it’s important to keep track of all abnormal skin issues that pop up over your lifetime.
Non-cancerous moles usually form a perfect circle on the skin, and it is common for moles and spots to appear on your skin as you age. However, if a mole or spot is bumpy, unnaturally raised, and looks more like an uneven blob than a perfect circle, that may be a sign of skin cancer, and you should get it looked at right away.
