You may be practicing safe sun during the summer months, but that doesn’t mean you can skimp on sunscreen in the fall and winter even on rainy or snowy days. Melanoma is the most aggressive form of skin cancer most often caused by harmful UV rays from the sun and tanning beds. It damages your skin’s DNA and survival rates are grim as the disease advances. Here’s a sigh of relief: If detected early, melanoma can most likely be cured. To spot early warning signs, dermatologists have developed the ABCDE method shown here. Do this head-to-toe self-exam once a month and check in with your derm every year.
Most of us already have these helpful tools on hand: a bright light, a full-length mirror, a hand mirror and a blow dryer (it will help you examine your scalp!).
