Now that summer is coming to a close, it is time to take a close look at your skin to identify any areas of concern or damage from the past few months of sun exposure. With the skin more exposed during summer, damage can easily occur without warming. Performing a routine full body skin check to look for suspicious moles or other lesions is important for your skin’s health and your overall health. All threats to your skin health are treatable when they are caught early – but you must be proactive and catch them.

It is always important to take an evaluation of your skin’s texture, moisture level, pigmentation, and reactions to the elements around you. However, it is even more critical that you evaluate your moles. Cancerous moles, or melanoma, is the most harmful form of skin cancer. If left untreated, or if not caught early enough, it can be fatal.

Dermatologists have made it as easy as possible to do a mole check: Use your ABCDEs!

  • A: Asymmetry. Does one half of your mole look different than the other half?
  • B: Border Irregularity. Is the border of a mole poorly defined? Are they blurred?
  • C: Color. Has your mole changed color? Is it darker? Is it multicolored?
  • D: Diameter. Is your mole bigger than a pencil eraser?
  • E: Evolution. Is your mole changing in size, shape, or color?

If you have a mole that concerns you after doing your ABCDEs, it is important to consult your dermatologist. Remember, early intervention offers the best likelihood for good outcomes. At Medical Dermatology Specialists in Atlanta, we offer preventive dermatology skin checks. We can diagnose your moles quickly and determine if any are concerning. If you have a mole, or multiple moles, that we are concerned with, a simply biopsy can be done to be sure it is not cancerous. But the first step is up to you. It’s time for a mole check – it can save your life!

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.
