How to spot if a mole is cancerous : Animation graphic reveals the ABCDE of skin cancer warning sign
How to spot if a mole is cancerous: Animation graphic reveals the ABCDE of skin cancer warning signs Skin cancer is the second most common form of the disease in people under 50 And yet, experts warn, the rate of early detection could be much higher Here, Dr David Fisher of Massachusetts General Hospital explains the benefits of early detection - and we present an animation graphic on how to check yourself As the years go by, our skin loses it springy freshness - and mysterious lumps and bumps start to appear. These blemishes can come in all shapes and sizes, and many are harmless. But slight changes could be a red flag: skin cancer is the second most common form of the disease in people under 50. Melanoma, a type of skin cancer, is one of the most treatable cancers. If caught early, the entire cancer could be removed simply by removing the mole in question. Basal cell carcinoma is even more manageable - only rare cases spread beyond the site. And yet, experts warn, the rate of early detection could be much higher. 'Many people are afraid of checking,' Dr David Fisher, director of the Melanoma Program at Massachusetts General Hospital, told Daily Mail Online. 'It's one of those fear and denial-type things. People would rather not know than find out something scary or devastating. 'But the thing is, six out of seven melanoma cases are cured just by catching it early and removing it. In other words, early detection could be life-saving.' He added: 'That statistic should help motivate people to be really proactive, to realize that there's a benefit to this. 'Not every cancer has that type of opportunity to catch it so early. This type of cancer does.' Moles are clusters of cells that produce a pigment in your skin. The more moles someone has on their body, the higher the risk of melanoma. Risk also increases if you have fair skin and red hair, if you sunbathe and if you use sunbeds. Of course, not all moles are dangerous: it's normal to have them. However, it can be easy to spot ones that are worth worrying about. Dermatologists use a simple list of five warning signs, using the rule ABCDE. This animation (above) explains how they work. A – asymmetry This means spotting an irregular shaped mole. B – borders Look to see if there are ragged edges to the mole. C – color change If a mole changes in color or is a different color in one part than in another. D – diameter Any increase in size should be checked out, but particularly more than about 6mm across. E – elevation In this graphic, the E section is classed as 'elevation', telling you to watch out for the mole raising from the surface, especially if it is irregularly raised. However, Dr Fisher explains, many dermatologists have different classifications for this. His preferred word is 'evolving'. 'Is it changing? Do you notice anything suspicious or concerning? That is key,' he says. 'You need to have a very low threshold for what counts as "concerning". I have yet to find a patient who is mad because it wasn't melanoma. It's always worth checking.'

Introduction to Skin Cancer #4: The ABCDEs of Melanoma
Video #4 of 4 These introductory skin cancer video modules engages novice health care professionals to make histological-clinical correlations for the three most common skin cancers: basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and melanoma. The goal of this video module is to engage novice health care professionals to go beyond the all-too-common phenomenon of memorizing gross and histological features of skin cancers without reference to the relationship between these features. By explicitly highlighting underlying histological-clinical correlations for BCC, SCC, and melanoma, this video module helps learners build a deeper and lasting knowledge of these common diseases. This module was successfully incorporated into the first-year flipped classroom curriculum for medical and dental students at Harvard Medical School. Written comments from students revealed that they enjoyed watching short concept videos to prepare for in-class, case-based discussions of BCC, SCC, and melanoma. By illustrating histological-clinical correlations and reducing cognitive load of the material through use of cartoons and prototypical clinical images, this video module is an accessible initial resource for an emerging generation of millennial health care professionals to learn about common skin cancers. Please find supplemental materials here: https://goo.gl/EN1L6V Educational Objectives By the end of this module, learners will be able to: 1. Describe how squamous cell carcinoma, basal cell carcinoma, and melanoma are classified. 2. Understand the relationship between hallmark histological and clinical features for SCC, BCC, and melanoma. 3. Describe key histological differences between nevi and melanoma. 4. Identify clinical ABCDE: asymmetry, border irregularity, color variation, diameter greater than 6 mm, and evolution features of dysplastic nevi and melanoma that make them distinct from benign nevi. 5. Describe the four main subtypes of melanoma: superficial, nodular, lentigo maligna, and acral. 6. Describe the three main subtypes of benign nevi: junctional, compound, and dermal.

Be on the lookout and tell your doctor about spots that have any of the following features: A is for Asymmetry. This benign mole is not asymmetrical. If you draw a line through the middle, the two sides will match, meaning it is symmetrical. If you draw a line through this mole, the two halves will not match, meaning it is asymmetrical, a warning sign for melanoma. B is for Border. A benign mole has smooth, even borders, unlike melanomas. The borders of an early melanoma tend to be uneven. The edges may be scalloped or notched. C is for Color. Most benign moles are all one color, often a single shade of brown. Having a variety of colors is another warning signal. A number of different shades of brown, tan or black could appear. A melanoma may also become red, white or blue. D is for Diameter. Benign moles usually have a smaller diameter than malignant ones. Melanomas usually are larger in diameter than the eraser on your pencil tip (¼ inch or 6mm), but they may sometimes be smaller when first detected. E is for Evolving. Common, benign moles look the same over time. Be on the alert when a mole starts to evolve or change in any way. When a mole is evolving, see a doctor. Any change — in size, shape, color, elevation, or another trait, or any new symptom such as bleeding, itching or crusting — points to danger. A change in texture. Catching suspicious moles is about more than just appearance. The feel of a mole or spot is often just as important an indicator of risk. Think twice if a mole or spot is itchy or painful. Bleeds, scabs or becomes crusty. Becomes inflamed. Becomes thicker, firm or raised in the center.

What Does Melanoma Look Like? | Skin Cancer
Watch more How to Prevent Skin Cancer videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/507175-What-Does-Melanoma-Look-Like-Skin-Cancer Recognizing melanoma is one of the most difficult things a dermatologist needs to do. ABCDE are a quick way to remember how to look for a melanoma. A, stands for asymmetry. Most small moles are symmetric and round. Most melanomas are not. So if you notice a mole that has an irregular pattern at the edge that is not symmetric, that is a suspicious case for melanoma. B is for borders. Most nevi have very sharp borders, unlike melanoma where the pigments, the color bleeds into the normal tissue. That is also a concerning sign for a melanoma. C stands for color. Multiple colors including shades of brown, black, white, red and blue are suspicious for a melanoma. D stands for diameter. Any mole larger than six millimeters that is new, needs to be evaluated by a dermatologist to rule out a melanoma, and E stands for evolving. Any changing moles or new moles should be examined by a dermatologist.

Mayo Clinic Minute: The ABCDE melanoma check
Melanoma develops in the cells that produce your skin’s pigment and is the most serious type of skin cancer. However, when it’s detected early, melanoma can be effectively treated. The ABCDE melanoma test can help you identify the warning signs of the cancer.

ABCDEs of Melanoma
By identifying suspicious moles using the ABCDE guidelines, early detection of melanomas can lead to early treatment. Australia has the highest incidence of melanoma in the world, and more than 11,000 people are diagnosed every year. However, the good news is that melanoma is often identifiable at an early stage where simple treatment may result in a complete cure. To find out more about melanoma, visit www.melanoma.org.au.

The Many Shades of Skin Cancer
This video is meant to spread awareness and educate people regarding the dangers of skin cancer. We decided the best way to introduce the topic is through use of a case study. By doing this it may make the video more applicable and relatable to the general audience. The case study involves a 24-year-old girl who would visit a tanning salon a few times a year. She was later diagnosed with having melanoma after discovering a strange mole on her back (Skin Cancer Foundation, 2016). In addition to being the most common form of skin cancer, melanoma is also the most dangerous. Skin cancer forms after the skin is exposed to UV radiation and cells acquire mutations and begin to grow out of control forming tumors (Whitmore, 2001). Basal cell carcinoma is another form of skin cancer that can be acquired by UV exposure (Karagas et al., 2002). It appears quite different than melanoma and can lead to severe disfigurements if not treated properly. The A, B, C, D, E’s of skin cancer aim to educate viewers on what to look out for in terms of detecting skin cancer (Canadian Skin Cancer Foundation, 2012). This is an acronym for asymmetry, border (raised or notched), colour (non uniform colours), diameter (greater than 6mm), and evolving (change over time in shape, colour, or size). Those who are greatest risk for developing skin cancer are fair skinned people, immunocompromised, and people with a family history of skin cancer (Lazovich & Forster, 2005). We then jump into discussing misconceptions viewers may have regarding tanning and skin cancer. Some misconceptions are that base tans help protect from skin cancer, you can only get skin cancer if you burn, and that tanning beds are safer than sun exposure. These misconceptions are often used in advertising of tanning salons at it may attract and peruse customers to use their services. It is important to note that regardless of the source of UV radiation, it is damaging to skin cells and can increase people’s risk of developing skin cancer (Skin Cancer, 2016). To help minimize the risk of getting skin cancer it is important to cover up, apply sunscreen with an SPF of 30, avoid tanning beds, and see your family physician or dermatologist if you see any concerning moles appear (Levine et al., 2005; Russak et al., 2010).

I get a few comments every now and again on why I hate tanning. Well the reason why I hate tanning is that I have a good friend whose mom suffered through skin cancer. This happened because she tanned a lot. She is alive but during the treatment she was in great pain. So much pain that I wouldn’t even wish it on my worst enemy. So yeah... happy way to start a video huh? What’s going on everybody! My name is Jack Jenkins and today we are talking about skin cancer. So why are we talking about skin cancer? Well first, if you are in the medical field, and I know a lot of my viewers are, you will encounter cancer at some point. Even if you are not in the medical field someone you know might get affected by this group of diseases. Another reason is that skin cancer is so prevalent. Don’t think so, well one in five Americans will get some form of skin cancer at one point. One in five. Granted most tumors of skin cancer are not harmful and wont metastasize but some will. According to the national cancer institute metastasis is spread of cancer or other diseased cells from the first form place to another part of the body. Here is a pretty good illustration of a lung carcinoma traveling through the blood stream to the liver. We will talk about this process a lot more in our cancer biology course. So how do we get skin cancer? Well one of the most common ways is to be exposed too harmful ultraviolet radiation. Like I said in previous videos, the ultraviolet radiation will damage the bases within our DNA. This will cause adjacent pyrimidine bases to form together. This is called a pyrimidine dimer and as you can see from the image, will cause the dna to warp. Dimers can also happen to the uracil in RNA causing an Uracil dimer. Why are these dimers bad? Well it stops DNA replication for a while or until it repairs. If the DNA bases are repaired wrong, then it can lead to mutations that are very dangerous. This is how melanoma happens. With melanoma the dimers will happen to the melanocytes. The damage of this is great. The damage is so great that melanoma is Infact the most dangerous skin cancer. Unlike the next few cancers we will talk about, melanoma is highly metastatic and is resistant to chemotherapy. If caught early, melanoma can be treated. If it gets to other areas of the body, then the results are fatal. Melanoma can form wherever there is pigment. From the skin to the lips to even your eyes. However, we will stick with cutaneous or skin melanoma for this video. Melanoma usually appears as a spreading brownish blackish patch on the skin. It’s pretty noticeable in this form and the person who has this is quick to act and get treated. The dangerous form is when it starts from a mole as a third of melanoma does. It’s hard to determine when the mole turns from just an ordinary spot to a very deadly diseased group of cells. To help determine if a mole is cancerous, the American cancer society has an ABCDE rule to help you find signs of melanoma. People who tan or are out in the sun a lot should check themselves or get someone to check them every month. If you have a yes to one or more of the following symptoms, please get a doctor to check you out further. It can save your life. Now the ABCDE rule is simple. The A is for asymmetry. Does half the mole or birthmark not match the other half. The B is for Border. Is the border or edges of the mark irregular, ragged or blurred. The C is for Color, is the color of the mark uneven including different patches of brown or black. The D is for diameter. Is the spot larger than six millimeters across? Be careful with this rule as melanomas can be smaller than six millimeters. Lastly, the E is for evolving. Does the mark change in size, shape or color? Again, if you inspect yourself and find any of these rules to be broken, call a doctor fast. It may save your life. Now let’s talk about two other types of skin cancer. These are referred to as non-melanoma cancers. Those two non-melanoma cancers are basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma. Let’s start with the base cell carcinoma. Basal cell carcinoma is the most common type of skin cancer. That’s kind of good considering that this type of cancer is the slowest to spread and is the safest... as far as a cancer is concerned. Where it lacks in met stick risk it makes up in the disfigurement by creating tumors that will spread to surrounding tissues. Read the rest at Academyofone.org

Melanoma: How To Identify Spots That Are Possible Signs Of Skin Cancer
Melanoma: How To Identify Spots That Are Possible Signs Of Skin Cancer: https://www.medicaldaily.com/melanoma-how-identify-spots-are-possible-signs-skin-cancer-423990. Thanks for watching, subscribe for more videos. To detect skin cancer as early as possible, you may have heard that the ABCDE rule is essential to remember. And if you haven't, stay with us, we'll explain in a minute.May is recognized as National Skin Cancer Awareness Month by the American Academy of Dermatologists (AAD), as they promote a focus on sharing information about symptoms and highlighting the importance of protection. In the United States, skin cancer is one of the most common forms, as well as one of the most preventable forms, of cancer.Melanoma, while ranking third in terms of prevalence, is said to be the deadliest skin cancer. According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, the number of new melanoma cases diagnosed annually increased by 53% from 2008 to 2018. Early detection is the key to successful treatment as the survival rate is 99% if the melanoma has only infiltrated the top layer of the skin. The rate decreases to 63% when the disease reaches the lymph nodes and significantly falls to 20% when it metastasizes to distant organs.Dermatologists developed an easy-to-remember system for spotting suspicious moles and spots on your skin, known as the ABCDE rule. While considered highly useful for detection, it is important to remember that there may exceptions to certain cases.A: AsymmetryIf you drew a line down the center of a mole, both sides would usually look the same. An asymmetrical lesion shaped irregularly is said to have a greater risk of being cancerous as moles that are noncancerous are usually symmetrical in appearance.B: BorderStay on the lookout for outlines of spots that appear ragged, notched, or blurred. The spread of pigment from the border of a spot into surrounding skin should also be noted and brought to the attention of a doctor.C: ColorUnusual shades and combinations of colors can be observed in melanoma spots. While regular moles are often just shades of brown or gray, multiple colors in the spots that include black, white, gray, brown, red, pink, or blue could be a possible sign of concern. D: DiameterIf the diameter of the spot is larger than the size of a pea or a pencil eraser i.e. measures more than 6 millimeters across, it may be worth getting it checked out. However, many cases of melanoma "can be smaller than a pencil eraser," said dermatologist Dr. Clifford Perlis from the Fox Chase Cancer Center in Philadelphia, warning about exceptions.E: EvolutionResearch has shown that most melanomas do not arise from existing moles. Since people typically do not grow new moles after the age of 30, any such new growths should be pointed out to a doctor. In any case, change and irritation are red flags. "If a mole itches, burns, starts growing, or becomes a different color, get it checked out immediately," said Dr. Bruce Robinson, a dermatologist in New York City.

In addition to experiencing itching and changes in skin as described above, there are five keys of skin cancer symptoms (called the ABCDE’s) that can help you recognize skin cancer early. Doctors recommend performing regular head-to-toe checks while keeping an eye out for these five ABCDE’s of skin tumors: 1. A (Asymmetry) If you draw a line through the middle of the mole or lesion on your skin, if the two halves are not symmetrical this is a sign that the tumor may be malignant. 2. B (Border) Non-malignant tumors will typically have a smooth, regular border. Whereas, the border of an early melanoma will generally be jagged or uneven. 3. C (Color) A tumor of only one color is a good sign because melanomas are known for being a variety of colors; particularly shades of black, brown, and tan. They may also be blue, red and other colors. 4. D (Diameter) As a rule of thumb, non-malignant skin cancers are smaller than ¼ inch in diameter. Melanomas are usually larger in diameter, so keep an eye on anything that is larger. 5. E (Evolving) If the tumor changes in color, elevation, size, or shape and if any new symptom arises (bleeding, crusting, itching, etc.) then it could be dangerous.

Cancer Detection Easy as "A-B-C-D-E"
According to the American Academy of Dermatology, one in five Americans will develop skin cancer in their lifetime. The first step of skin cancer detection starts with you and it's as simple as A-B-C-D-E. Dr. Mark Tusa with the Chattanooga Skin and Cancer Clinic says to use this method when examining moles and skin legions every two to three months. Jamie Slagle came to the Clinic to get a skin biopsy thanks to this detection method. She noticed a color change, or "C" and decided to head to the doctor. "It does have some strange colors in it in some areas ... some darker and lighter colors ... we will do a biopsy on that. We will see what shows up," said Mark Tusa, M.D. "Detecting early can spare you of any major surgeries or death," said Dr. Tusa. Here are the A-B-C-D-E's of skin cancer detection: Asymmetry or when one-half does not look like the other half. Border or when there are irregular, scalloped, or poorly-defined edges. Color or when there are different shades of color. Diameter or when it is greater than six millimeters, which is the size of a pencil eraser. Evolving or when it looks different from the rest or is changing in size, shape, or color. "A majority of moles are non-cancerous, but when a patient says that things are changing they need to be biopsied and checked," said Dr. Tusa. A skin biopsy is a quick and virtually painless procedure. Doctors can do it right in their office and they will have results back in less than 10 days. "Okay so how was that, how do you feel? "There was just a little tiny sting and then you can't feel a thing, I didn't even know they were doing it," said Jamie Slagle, biopsy patient.

How to Spot Signs of Skin Cancer
Learn how to identify the most common signs of skin cancer. Early detection is the most critical factor in diagnosing and treating skin cancer before it spreads. While there are different types of skin cancer, they share many common factors that patients can look for themselves. Skin cancer can usually be spotted early by monitoring existing moles on your body. Five factors, often called the ABCDE's of skin cancer, denote the most commonly seen changes that occur in moles prior to the development of skin cancer. They are: Asymmetry, Border, Color, Diameter, (and) Evolution. If you notice any of these changes, or the appearance of new growths, see a dermatologist immediately.

Basal Cell Carcinoma Shave Biopsy | Auburn Medical Group
A shave biopsy is obtained to rule out basal cell carcinoma as the diagnosis of this skin lesion. The pathology results were positive, meaning that this lesion is INDEED a basal cell carcinoma. The margins were not clear of tumor, so the patient will have additional evaluation by a Dermatologist where several options for definitive treatment will probably be offered. This type of skin cancer is normally very treatable and rarely results in significant effects on people's health.

How to Recognize Melanoma|metastatic melanoma survival rates
How to Recognize Melanoma|metastatic melanoma survival rates Checking your skin for melanoma is something that everyone should regularly do. Malignant melanoma is the most deadly form of skin cancer, but early recognition can save lives. While melanomas can differ in appearance, there are techniques to recognize all types. The ABCDE rule evaluates moles for asymmetry, border variations, color, diameter, and evolution, while the EFG rule looks at a mole’s elevation, firmness, and growth. The “ugly duckling” method focuses on identifying which moles are different. After you learn to recognize melanoma, you’ll be able to check your skin with confidence. Any mole that enlarges, changes in color or begins to itch should be evaluated by a skin cancer specialist. Use these rules when looking at a suspicious blemish, mole or freckle. 1 Check if the mole is elevated. Nodular melanomas, which make up about 20% of cases, don’t follow the ABCDE rule. Luckily, they do have common features that help you identify them, such as being elevated. Check for moles that feel like a bump. Compared to other moles, they will feel raised 2 Feel if the mole is firm. Benign moles usually feel like the rest of your skin, so a mole that is hard is questionable. A nodular melanoma will be firm to the touch.[9] Use your finger to check the firmness of your moles. Check with your doctor if a mole feels hard. SUBSCRIBE TO MORE VIDEOS

Skin Cancer - Symptom, Causes & Diagnosis (Finding Earth)
Skin cancer There are three major types of skin cancers: basal cell carcinoma (BCC), squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), and melanoma. The first two skin cancers are grouped together as non-melanoma skin cancers. Symptoms of skin cancer (non-melanoma) Basal cell carcinoma Squamous cell carcinoma Bowen's disease symptoms of melanoma The ABCDE rule : it is another guide to the usual signs of melanoma. A is for Asymmetry: One half of a mole or birthmark does not match the other. • B is for Border: The edges are irregular, ragged, notched, or blurred. • C is for Color: The color is not the same all over and may include shades of brown or black, or sometimes with patches of pink, red, white, or blue. • D is for Diameter: The spot is larger than 6 millimeters across, although melanomas can sometimes be smaller than this. • E is for Evolving: The mole is changing in size, shape, or color. Some melanomas do not fit the rules described above Other warning signs are: • A sore that does not heal • Spread of pigment from the border of a spot into surrounding skin • Redness or a new swelling beyond the border • itchiness, tenderness, or pain • Change in the surface of a mole – scaliness, oozing, bleeding, Causes of skin cancer Most skin cancer is caused by ultraviolet (UV) light damaging the DNA in skin cells. The main source of UV light is sunlight. types of UV light: • ultraviolet A (UVA) • ultraviolet B (UVB) • ultraviolet C (UVC) Increased risk Certain factors are believed to increase chances of developing skin cancer, including: • pale skin that does not tan easily • blonde hair • blue eyes • older age • a large number of moles • a large number of freckles • a condition that suppresses your immune system, such as HIV • past History of skin cancer • skin cancer in the family • radiation exposure • A weak immune system • Human papilloma virus (HPV) Exposure to Chemicals like • Coal tar • Soot • Pitch • Creosote • Petroleum products, such as mineral oil or motor oil • Shale oils • Arsenic Other skin conditions Psoriasis Solar keratosis Xeroderma pigmentosum Gorlin’s syndrome Birthmarks some types of birthmark in the outer layer of skin can increase the risk of developing a type of skin cancer called basal cell carcinoma (BCC). Diagnosis Medical history and physical exam Usually the first step the doctor takes is to get a medical history. During the physical exam, your doctor will note the size, shape, color, and texture of the area(s) in question, and whether they are bleeding, oozing, or crusting. Skin biopsy If the doctor thinks a spot might be a melanoma, a sample of skin will be removed from the suspicious area and sent to a lab to be looked at under a microscope. This is called a skin biopsy. Shave biopsy Punch biopsy Incisional and excisional biopsies Fine needle aspiration biopsy Surgical lymph node biopsy Sentinel lymph node biopsy Chest x-ray This test may be done to help determine whether melanoma has spread to the lungs. Computed tomography (CT) scan The CT scan uses x-rays to make detailed, cross-sectional images of your body. Unlike a regular x-ray, CT scans can show the detail in soft tissues (such as internal organs). CT-guided needle biopsy: CT scans can also be used to help guide a biopsy needle into a suspicious area within the body. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan Like CT scans, MRI scans give detailed images of soft tissues in the body. But MRI scans use radio waves and strong magnets instead of x-rays to create pictures. A contrast material might be injected, just as with CT scans, Positron emission tomography (PET) scan A PET scan can help show if the cancer has spread to lymph nodes or other parts of the body. It is most useful in people with more advanced stages of cancer Blood tests Blood tests aren’t used to diagnose melanoma, but some tests may be done before or during treatment, especially for more advanced melanomas.

Melanoma Symptoms
Melanoma Symptoms. Melanoma can appear on normal skin, or it may develop around an existing mole. If the melanoma is detected early, before it has the chance to spread, it is much more likely to be cured. A new spot on the skin that has changed in size, shape, or color is a major warning sign for melanoma. Referring to the ABCDE rule can be a useful guide for recognizing symptoms. Asymmetry: one half of a mole or birthmark does not match the other half. Borders: irregular, ragged, or blurred edges of a mole. Color: irregular color, ranging from shades of black, brown, or tan (sometimes pink, white, red, or blue) within one sore. Diameter: the spot is typically (not always) larger than 6 mm in diameter—the size of a pencil eraser. Evolving: this is a new addition to the former ABCD list; it acknowledges that if a mole changes—in any way—this is good cause to see your doctor. (This is the latest addition to the standard list). Self-Examinations. Take control of your health. Whether you are a person who is at a high risk for melanoma or not, health experts recommend taking a proactive approach by performing self-exams to check for any skin changes. Check regularly, and alert your doctor if you see anything that looks suspicious. Remember—you know your body best!. Helpful Tips: Remember to check your scalp, and along the hairline. Don’t be shy: if you’re examining a hard-to-see area, ask a partner or friend to help. Write down the size, location, and appearance of all moles and birthmarks. You can refer to this next time to see if there have been any changes. Keep a Record: Write down the size, location, and appearance of all moles and birthmarks. You can refer to this next time to see if there have been any changes. All Photos Licensed Under CC Source : www.pexels.com www.pixabay.com www.commons.wikimedia.org

DermTV - Melanoma Myths [DermTV Epi #446]
Sunscreen isn't only for the summer since any time of the year, unprotected sun exposure can lead to skin cancer, even deadly Melanoma. However, in addition to sunscreen, knowledge is an important tool in your defense against Melanoma. In this episode of DermTV, Dr. Schultz dispels the top melanoma myths. Subscribe to DermTV: http://www.youtube.com/dermtvdotcom http://DermTV.com Connect with DermTV: http://www.facebook.com/dermtv http://www.twitter.com/dermtv [TRANSCRIPT] Summer's over but Melanoma isn't because it's not just a summer disease. Melanoma sadly kills 1 American every hour... that's 10,000 deaths a year from a completely preventable disease. Preventing Melanoma is about knowing the facts and not buying into myths that are convenient to believe. So stay tuned for mythbusting of 7 melanoma myths. My esteemed colleague, Dr. Steven Wang from the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center and author of the important book "Beating Melanoma: A Five Step Survival Guide," in a recent article in "Bottom Line Health" discussed 7 myths that I would like to share with you... each of which can increase your risk of Melanoma. First myth... "Melanoma is a rare disease". The facts are as many as 100,000 new cases of Melanoma are diagnosed in this country every year and there is currently a virtual epidemic of Melanoma in white women between the ages of 15 and 39. Second myth... "You won't get Melanoma if you avoid the sun". Yes, avoiding the sun and even protecting yourself from it can lower your risk of Melanoma but doesn't eliminate it. One bad sunburn as a child or teen can start a process which results in Melanoma 25 years later despite current sun protection as an adult. Myth #3... This may be a shocker but... "Sunscreen prevents melanoma!" The unfortunate reality is sunscreen use helps prevent Melanoma but doesn't guarantee you won't get it. Myth#4... "Tanning booths are safer than they used to be" This one's easy. Anytime you get a tan regardless of how, it's because your skin has been damaged by cancer causing UV rays. There is no safe tan... PERIOD. In a study published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute, people who used tanning salons at least once a week were 55% more likely to get Melanoma. Need I say any more? Myth #5... "You're safe in your car" The reality is regular car window glass lets 70% of the UVA cancer causing rays through the glass to hit your skin. You need broad spectrum sunscreen in the car even if the windows are closed. Myth #6... Melanoma appears as an ugly black mole. Actually, many melanomas are neither ugly nor black, but can be lighter shades of tan and brown and can even be less than half the size of a pencil eraser. Look for any spot that's darker or different from your other moles and know the ABCDE rules for spotting melanoma, which I covered in another episode. And last, Myth #7... Melanoma is usually fatal. Fortunately, as a result of more people getting regular skin cancer checks by dermatologists, most melanomas are detected early enough to be cured and for the more advanced ones, we now have new medicines that are significantly increasing survival rates. It's easy to decrease your risk of this terrible cancer, and early detection results in greater than 95% survival. So there you have it. 7 melanoma myths. Don't get lulled into a false sense of security by conveniently believing any of the myths I just mentioned. The best defense against getting melanoma is prevention, so make sure to wear sunscreen every day and have annual exams. It's a matter of life or death. Yours. [ABOUT DERMTV] Everyone can have beautiful, healthy, and younger looking skin, and DermTV, the Internet's daily skincare video show, will demonstrate how by revealing expert tips and techniques and by providing real solutions for real skincare issues. Skincare (whether cosmetic or medical) previously required a trip to your dermatologist or a shopping spree at the pharmacy. And that's if you have a trusted nearby dermatologist or a local informed pharmacy. But not anymore. We at DermTV are committed to making best-in-class dermatology and skincare guidance accessible to everyone, anytime, at your computer. Every weekday, our host, Dr. Neal Schultz, one of New York's most trusted and respected dermatologists (see bio below), teaches skincare's most timely and timeless issues.

ABCD's of Moles
How does Dr. Ebrahim check to see if a mole is suspicious? She uses the ABCD rule: Asymmetry, Border, Color or color change, Diameter, plus Evolution of the mole. Dr. Ebrahim, in her Dermatology clinic uses Dermoscopy to evaluate moles. The dermatascope provides 10 times magnification which allows her to see deeper structures of the mole. Dr. Ebrahim recommends that you have your moles evaluated through a combination of naked eye exam and Dermoscopy.

How to Spot Early pink skin cancer| skin cancer bumps on face
How to Spot Early pink skin cancer| skin cancer bumps on face Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer, because the skin is the largest organ and it is in direct contact with the environment every day.[1] Early diagnosis is key when dealing with skin cancer. Working to prevent skin cancer is the best early defense against skin cancer. You can examine your own skin every month as well as ask your dermatologist if you find something you are unsure of. These methods will help you spot the early signs of skin cancer. 1 Examine your body. The best way to find skin cancer early is to keep a check on any skin abnormalities through a monthly full body skin exam. Stand in front of a full length mirror. Examine the whole front of your body, checking each part of your body. Turn around and look over your shoulder, examining the back area of your body, paying special attention to the back of your legs. Next, raise your arms and examine your underarms, inner arm area, elbow, forearms, upper underarms, and palms. Make sure you also look at the tops and bottoms of your feet. Using a hand mirror, check your buttocks, genitals, neck, and scalp. If there are areas you can’t reach, ask a loved one to help. 2 Track your changes on a mole map. As you examine your body, track your moles on a mole map. This map needs to be a representation of your body, with a front and a back, so you can keep track of where all your moles are. Each month, pinpoint where your moles are and write down the general appearance of them. The American Academy of Dermatology has a premade map that you can download every month as you do your examination 3 Look for problem moles. While making your examination, you need to watch for problem moles. You should notice is your moles change shape, size, or color, start to ooze or bleed, and feel itchy, swollen, or tender. To keep track of problem moles, you need to follow the ABCDE rule. The rules to notice melanomas are: A: Asymmetry, when moles have different halves and one side looks different than the other B: Borders, which tend to be ragged, irregular, or scalloped C: Color, which can be different shades of brown, tan, red, or black, with rare ones turning white D: Diameter, which tend to be larger than 6 mm E: Evolving, which means they change size, shape, and color over time Repeat the exam once a month. In order to note the progress of your moles, you need to make sure you perform this examine once a month. This will ensure that you know how your moles are doing and you will be able to catch any changes as early as possible. Create a new map every month so you can notice any changes.
