Moles on the Foot
American Cancer Society estimates that more than 120,000 new cases of Melanoma are diagnosed each year. Anyone who has more than 100 moles is at greater risk for melanoma.
Learn the ABCDs of Melanoma. Any mole, bump, or patch on your foot or leg that meets any of the following criteria, should be checked:
- Asymmetry - If the mole is divided in half, the sides don't match.
- Borders - Borders look scalloped, uneven, or ragged.
- Color - There may be more than one color. These colors may have an uneven distribution.
- Diameter – The mole is wider than a pencil eraser (greater than 6 mm).
