Watch Out for Melanoma

Melanoma skin cancer can occur any place on your body. It can grow in a mole you've had for years or in a spot you've never had a mole before, according to the American Academy of Family Physicians. See your doctor if you have a mole that changes in color size or shape, if the surface of the mole changes (becomes scaly, crusty or bleeds) or if a new mole develops.
