The most important warning sign
for melanoma is a change in size, shape, or color of a
mole or other skin growth, such as a birthmark. One of the things to watch for
Asymmetry means that one half of the mole or skin
growth doesn't match the other half. Call your doctor if you notice asymmetry
in a mole or other skin growth.
