People of all ages get skin cancer. Checking your skin can help you find skin cancer early when it’s highly treatable.

Skin cancer is actually one of the easiest cancers to find. That’s because skin cancer usually begins where you can see it.

You can get skin cancer anywhere on your skin — from your scalp to the bottoms of your feet. Even if the area gets little sun, it’s possible for skin cancer to develop there.
You can also get skin cancer in places that may surprise you. Skin cancer can begin under a toenail or fingernail, on your genitals, inside your mouth, or on a lip.

The best way to find skin cancer is to examine yourself. When checking, you want to look at the spots on your skin. And you want to check everywhere — from your scalp (parting your hair to check your entire scalp) to the spaces between your toes and the bottoms of your feet.

If possible, having a partner can be helpful. Your partner can examine hard-to-see areas like your scalp and back.

Getting in the habit of checking your skin will help you notice changes. Checking monthly can be beneficial.

What skin cancer looks like

Skin cancer appears on the body in many different ways. It can look like a:

  • Changing mole or mole that looks different from your others
  • Dome-shaped growth
  • Scaly patch
  • Non-healing sore or sore that heals and returns
  • Brown or black streak under a nail

To find skin cancer on your body, you don’t have to remember a long list. It’s time to see a dermatologist if you notice a spot on your skin that:

  • Differs from the others
  • Changes
  • Itches
  • Bleeds

If you find a spot on your skin that could be skin cancer, see a dermatologist. Found early, skin cancer is highly treatable.

Given time to grow, treatment for skin cancer becomes more difficult. See a suspicious spot? See a dermatologist.
