what are the signs and symptoms of a skin cancer?

Knowing your skin is essential when detecting possible skin cancers. The Cancer Council recommends checking your skin in a mirror monthly to notice any new spots or changes in existing moles.

when should I get checked?

Early detection and treatment is key in avoiding the need for surgery and significantly decreasing the risk of adverse health implications associated with skin cancer. If you are unsure about a mole or skin lesion, please see your Doctor to determine if the spot requires further action.
