Check your Body
Examining your skin on a regular basis could lead to early detection, treatment and in most cases, positive outcomes.
The Canadian Skin Cancer Foundation recommends self examinations at least monthly, using the ABCDEs of early detection to help determine if a doctor should be consulted.
At the same time, it is also important to check your whole body, including asking someone to help check your back and scalp. Skin cancer can show up on parts of the body that are not always exposed to the sun, so make sure you check places like your armpits or the bottoms of your feet.
