In recognition of May being Melanoma/Skin Cancer Detection and Prevention Month, the AAD is encouraging people to screen themselves and their loved ones for skin cancer.

The Website offers some tools and techniques for effective skin cancer self-examinations:

  • Illustrated Skin Cancer Self-Examination to detect suspicious moles.
  • Download a Body Mole Map to know and track your spots.
  • Find Free Skin Cancer Screening
  • Find a Dermatologist
  • Visit SkinCancerNet, a comprehensive skin cancer information resource from the AAD

      To help people automate the self-examination of their skin between visits to the dermatologist, we’ve released http://www.skinofmine.com which allows users to upload photos of their moles, get ABCD feedback, and compare previous and current photos mathematically to see if anything has changed.
