Be on the lookout for: • Moles that begin to itch or bleed • A spot that doesn’t heal

• A dark spot under the toenail or fingernail • A flat, red spot that is rough, dry or scaly • A spot that becomes painful or tender

Check the front and back of your legs. Use a mirror to help you see your shoulders, back, buttocks and genitals.

Check hands, nails, soles of the feet and between the fingers and toes.

Check your head, face, ears and the back of your neck.

Check your abdomen, arms, underarms and chest, including under your breasts.

A blow dryer may help you look at your scalp.
