Dr. Jamie Weisman of Medical Dermatology Specialists in Atlanta GA

Cancer is one of the most dreaded words that anyone can hear at the doctor’s office. Skin cancer is estimated to affect up to half of fair-skinned people who live to be 65 here in America. Skin cancers include melanoma, basal cell carcinoma, and squamous cell carcinoma. These skin cancers most often start as changes to the skin, making it necessary to examine your own skin thoroughly and to have any suspicious moles, spots, or lesions addressed immediately.

In most cases, skin cancer can be effectively treated and cured if early intervention is given. However, it is often found that many patients either ignore a suspicious spot or that they do not know what to look for. A mole is a benign growth of melanocytes, or a growth of specific “colored” cells. Most moles develop during youth, and it is uncommon to acquire a mole in the adult years unless a concern is present. This is a first step in identifying skin cancer: if a new mole or growth appears after the age of 25, it should be evaluated by a medical professional immediately.

For self-evaluation purposes, medical professionals came up with the ABCDEs of melanoma. These are specific characteristics that help to identify any type of mole or spot that should be checked by your dermatologist.


  • A: Asymmetry – the appearance of one half of a mole does not match the other half.
  • B: Border irregularity – the edges of a mole are ragged, blurred, or notched.
  • C: Color – the color (pigmentation) of a mole is not uniform.
  • D: Diameter – larger than 6 millimeters in diameter (approximately the size of a pencil eraser)
  • E: Evolution – evolving or changing appearance. This is the most important factor when it comes to evaluating a mole. Any change in size, color, or appearance should be brought to your dermatologist’s attention immediately.

Our Patient Reviews

Dr. Weisman was very professional, friendly, and engaged in conversation with terminology I would understand. Her beside manner was, quite frankly, surprising! It was one of the most comfortable visits I've ever experienced with a doctor.

Waquele H.
I truly cannot express how thankful I am for this practice. I have been treated with kindness and immense care by every staff member I have encountered here. The nurses and assistants are beyond attentive and genuinely care for the patient. I have just received a treatment plan from Dr. Laura Biehl, and even if this particular treatment plan doesn't provide me relief, I am confident that Dr. Biehl will work to figure out a solution. She is extremely knowledgeable, listens to patient concerns, and takes time to answer patient questions. Dr. Biehl, and this practice are true gems. If you have any dermatological issues this practice is absolutely the best of the best.
