You should see your doctor if you have any of the following warning signs of melanoma: change in the size, shape, or colour of a mole; oozing or bleeding from a mole; or a mole that feels itchy, hard, lumpy, swollen, or tender to the touch. Melanoma can also appear on the body as a new mole. Screening the body for melanoma can potentially lead to earlier diagnosis, thinner tumours and less chance of death from the cancer. If you want to have your skin checked, the doctor’s at ERA Doctors are most definitely the best people to see as they will know your full history and can provide follow-up care. If you have been treated for skin cancer it is a good idea to have your skin checked by your doctor on a regular basis.
