We are not taking about the furry mammals that live in tunnels, but more importantly melanoma which usually presents itself as little brown spots (like moles). To know if they are friendly or no,t you need to keep an eye them. There are certain changes to the areas that need to be watched and if any of these happen you should contact your GP or skin cancer specialist straight away and explain what you have noticed.
- If they get lumpier across the surface or change in size.
- If the border of the area changes in shape.
- If they itch or bleed.
- If they change in colour – particularly turning patchy.
- If the texture changes at all.
If you feel you need to speak to a specialist please contact Debbie on the Helpline on 0800 917 4922.
