Dermatology / Prevention: skin cancer
When was the last time you looked at you skin?
Dark moles, asymmetric in size and colour, irregular in shape and growing abruptly in a relatively short time, are among the suspicious signs that you should learn to recognise in your skin. These changes may be benign, but can also indicate the presence of malignant melanoma, the most aggressive and deadly type of skin cancer.
Vitor Neto, a dermatologist at Loulé Hospital, stresses the importance of prevention and keeping a close eye on your skin, in the detection of this and other types of skin cancer.
