Tomorrow is…Melanoma Monday! Woo hoo, you say. I’m sure I can hear you say that. Some people will be wearing orange tomorrow, and possibly a black melanoma bracelet. I haven’t decided yet if I will participate only because I don’t own a lot of orange. It’s one of those cruel ironies that I do happen to look good in orange if I have a tan—and I really haven’t had much of a tan in years.
- A is for asymmetrical shape.
- B is for irregular border.
- C is for changes in color.
- D is for diameter (but don't wait until it's bigger than a pencil eraser if it's of concern to you—I think no one took mine seriously early on because it was so tiny, but obviously catching it early is what saves your life).
- E is for evolving.
