Know your skin

What does melanoma look like?

Our overview of melanoma pictures includes pictures of moles and other skin lesions, that you can use as a first comparison to any moles you might feel uncomfortable with. The melanoma pictures give you an idea of what melanoma skin cancer can look like. Signs of melanoma can differ in form, color or borders.

These signs are measured below each picture. Other characteristics such as diameter and evolution are not shown, as they are difficult to assess through static images. However, when you check your skin, make sure to check for these signs, too.

As melanoma is the most dangerous type of skin cancer, it is very important to visit a doctor when you feel unsure about a skin lesion. You will notice that all melanoma pictures are quite different from one another, making it harder to detect the disease by only a few pictures.

FAQ

Frequently asked questions about melanoma pictures

The first melanoma warning signs often are the appearance of a new skin spot or an existing skin lesion that grows or changes in color or shape. You should pay attention to spots that look different from all of the other spots on your skin.

Melanoma spreads when the tumor’s malignant cells travel through the bloodstream or lymphatic system to other parts of the body such as lymph nodes, tissues or organs.

To help you keep an eye on your dangerous moles you can use the ABCDE rule to recognize the warning signs on it: Asymmetry, Border irregularity, multiple Colours, Diameter greater than 6 mm and Evolution.If you notice these warning signs or if your skin spot is changing or growing, visit a healthcare professional promptly.
During medical examination your doctor will ask about symptoms, risk factors such as family history of skin cancer or sunburn and examine your skin to look for signs that may indicate melanoma. Any suspicious area will be removed and sent for laboratory analysis (this is called skin biopsy). Biopsy is the only sure way for the doctor to know if it is skin cancer.
