Default Signs of melanoma

***Glossary Terms:

* Cancer
* Melanoma
* Mole
* Skin


Melanoma can appear suddenly as a new mole, or it can develop slowly in or near an existing mole. In men, melanomas are often found between the shoulders and hips, or the head and neck area. In women, melanoma often develops on the lower legs as well as between the shoulders and hips.

If you see any of the following signs of skin cancer or precancer, consult your doctor promptly.


* A skin growth that increases in size and looks pearly, translucent, tan, brown, black, red, pink, or multicolored.

* A mole that changes in color or in texture, becomes irregular in shape, gets larger, or is bigger than a pencil eraser.

* A spot or growth that continues to itch, hurt, crust, scab, erode, or bleed.

* An open sore that lasts for more than 4 weeks, or heals and then reopens.

* A scaly or crusty bump that is horny, dry, and rough and may produce a pricking or tender sensation.



To view pictures of typical melanoma lesions, see the section, What Does Melanoma Look Like?
