Detect Melanoma Early
Melanoma is a very dangerous type of skin cancer. This skin cancer develops in the melanin cells, which are the pigment that gives skin color. We encourage you to perform self-exams on your skin. If you see any changes in moles or if new moles suddenly appear, we advise you to schedule an appointment for professional evaluation and treatment.
Dr. Boucher stresses the importance of not taking chances with melanoma because it can be deadly. If a family member has been diagnosed with melanoma, it is very important that all family members have a skin exam. Patients who have had melanoma should be examined yearly for the rest of their lives because they can get another one at any time after the first.
Remember the A, B, C, and D of Skin Cancer
We educate you to look out for the A, B, C, and D of skin cancer.
A = Asymmetry
— two sides of the mole have different shape
B = Border irregularity
— ragged, scalloped, or poorly defined edges
C = Color
— pigment not uniform and may include shades of tan, brown, and black; dashes of red, white, and blue make it look mottled
D = Diameter
— melanomas are usually greater than 6 mm in diameter when diagnosed, but they can be smaller
If you see moles with these features, call us at 210-651-3233 to schedule an appointment for professional evaluation. We're the first dermatologist in the area to use the SRT-100
non-surgical skin cancer treatment device.
