What are the signs that  I should have a mole checked for cancer?

Moles are very common and benign in most cases. By the time you reach adulthood, you have about 20-40 moles. However, if you notice new moles developing on your skin or changes in your existing moles, you should make an appointment with Dr. Gladstein for a skin cancer exam.

Abnormal moles are identified by “ABCDE” characteristics.

  • Asymmetry: Your moles should be round and symmetrical
  • Border: Your moles should have regular, well-defined borders
  • Color: Normal moles are brown or flesh-colored, not black, blue, or irregularly colored
  • Diameter: Your moles should be no larger in diameter than a pencil eraser
  • Evolution: Your moles shouldn’t change shape or color

 

How should I take care of my skin?

Skin care is important for keeping your skin healthy and looking great.

You should wash and moisturize with products that are formulated for your skin type. It is also critical to wear sunscreen every day, even if you’re not planning on spending a lot of time outside. Drinking plenty of water and eating a balanced diet will also affect the appearance of your skin in a positive way.

If you have acne, sensitive skin, aging skin, or a skin condition like psoriasis, eczema or dermatitis, Dr. Gladstein can provide you with customized advice about skin care products that are best for your skin.
