Melanoma – Symptoms and Signs

mole asymmetry

Melanoma is one of the most aggressive types of a skin cancer which spreads and metastasizes very quickly. This tumor develops from skin melanocytes, the cells that synthesize melanin. American specialists developed a special ABCDE test for moles that is applicable in domestic conditions and helps detect melanoma on its early stage.

A – Asymmetry
Normal moles are usually symmetrical. To determine symmetry, drew an imaginary axis through the middle of the mole. If the received parts look equal, don’t worry, but if they are of different size, it’s better to consult your doctor.
