What are symptoms of cancerous moles?

To know whether you have symptoms of cancerous moles, you need to follow the ABCDE rule. Following words will explain what the ABCED rule is:

  • Asymmetry: Cancerous moles do not look the same on both sides.
  • Border: The border of cancerous moles may be uneven, jagged or blurry.
  • Color: Cancerous moles usually have more than one color.
  • Diameter: If a mole is larger than an eraser (about 0.25inch, or 6mm), it is abnormal.
  • Evolution. Changes of moles in the symmetry, border, color or diameter.

Following signs may also be the symptoms of cancerous moles:

  • Itching.
  • Bleeding or oozing from the mole.
