You need to check your whole body for suspicious lesions. You need to remember the ABCDE of skin: A-Asymetry of skin lesion- or irregular, B-border of the lesion- also irregular is suspicious, C-color- multiple colors are worrisome, D-diameter- those larger than a pencil eraser are worrisom, and E-evolution- moles or lesions that change over time.
