All skin cancers can be successfully cured if they are discovered and treated early. By spotting changes in your moles or finding new, suspicious lesions, you can help your Doctor detect skin cancer before it has a chance to spread. Annual skin examinations are recommended for most individuals, but more frequent checks should be done if you have a history of skin cancer. The greatest underlying cause of skin cancer is the accumulated damage from excessive sun exposure. In some cases there may be a genetic predisposition.

Coupled with a yearly skin exam by a Doctor, self-examination of your skin once a month is the best way to detect the early warning signs of basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and malignant melanoma, the three main types of skin cancer. Look for a new growth or any skin change.
