☀️ Summer is here and so it's time to be sun safe to prevent skin cancer.

There are certain characteristics to look for in spots and moles. Remember the 'ABCDE' of skin cancer when checking your skin:

Asymmetry — does each side of the spot or mole look different to the other?
Border — is it irregular, jagged or spreading?
Colours — are there several, or is the colour uneven or blotchy?
Diameter — look for spots that are getting bigger
Evolution — is the spot or mole changing or growing over time?

Concerned about skin cancer, talk to your doctor now.
