Cancerous mole

  • How do I know if the mole on my body is cancerous?

  • Hey Radhika,

    Clinicians have defined certain attributes to be suspicious of malignant (cancerous) moles:
    Asymmetry, irregular borders, sudden color change, diameter if >5mm and sudden unexplained enlargement of the mole.

    In case you have noticed any of the above, we would advise you to visit your general physician to have it checked. Thanks.
