Don't be shy; melanoma isn't, and finding it early could save your life. To that end, our education team has developed this helpful guide to self-screening. Follow the steps each month and pay attention to moles or spots that change shape, size or color. Know the ABCDEguide of melanoma. See something unusual? Make an appointment with a dermatologist as soon as possible.
