Skin cancer is not just a problem in the southern hemisphere, it’s on our doorsteps too and we all need to #BeMoleAware.

Signs & symptoms

It can be difficult to tell the difference between a non-cancerous mole and a cancerous one, particularly if you have a lot of moles or freckles. But there are some tell-tale signs that you can look out for.

Is the mole:

  • Getting bigger
  • Changing shape
  • Changing colour
  • Bleeding or becoming crusty
  • Itchy or painful

#BeMoleAware - Self checking

  • Everyone should check their skin and moles every three months
  • Those at risk should have a trained doctor examine them at least once a year
  • Pay close attention to all areas of your skin, even those that that are not exposed to the sun
  • Don't forget to check those hidden areas - your back, soles of your feet, scalp etc
  • Get a friend or partner to help you

What to do if you have any concerns?
