Skin cancer is on the increase. 

Doctors advise you to check your moles regularly. 

Common moles should be round and symmetrical, so watch out for moles that are irregular in shape. 

Watch out for odd shaped borders and poorly defined edges.

Common moles are usually a single shade of black or brown. 

Watch out for moles which differ from this. 

Watch out for moles which are larger than 6mm in diameter. 

Be aware of the general appearance of your moles you that you can soon spot changes in shape, borders or colour.
