What are symptoms of cancerous moles?

A:
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.
  • Scrape that is not healing.

If you have symptoms above, you had better tell them to your doctor at once. Doctors will help you know whether your mole is a cancerous mole and decide on treatment. The earlier you start treatment, the more likely you are to cure cancerous moles.
