Skin check-up

Skin check up

A regular check-up can help detect problems with your skin and skin cancer. As with testicular cancer, the sooner skin cancer is discovered and treated, the more likely you are to achieve a complete cure. Warning signs to look out for include:

  • A slowly growing lump or bump.
  • A change in skin colour or texture.
  • A mole or blemish that has changed in shape, size or colour or has started to itch, bleed or become sore.
  • The sudden appearance of a new mole.
  • A sore or ulcer that hasn’t healed with three weeks.

Don’t become paranoid! You also need to bear in mind that your body’s appearance changes as you get older.
