The third greatest deadly disease in the world is skin tumor or melanoma. One of the birthmarks may trigger melanoma due to excessive exposure to UV rays from the sun or spending time in the solarium.
Skin Between The Fingers

Birthmarks that change their shape or some other changes of the skin may be signs of skin melanoma.

Birthmarks can often be found on some areas of the skin that we rarely notice, such as the intimate parts of the body or the space between the fingers.

Therefore, we often forget to check the changes in color, shape and size of these birthmarks.

Doctors have created special ABCDE steps, which will help you to analyze all the changes of your birthmarks. The steps are:

A. The birthmark becomes asymmetrical. It is not circular in shape anymore.
B. The borders of the birthmark are changed.
C. The birthmark has changed its color. It may even bleed.
D. The birthmark has changed its dimension. It is larger. Any birthmark larger than 6 millimeters must be checked up by a doctor.
E. The birthmark has evolved, which means it is completely changed in dimension, color and shape.


Follow these rules strictly:

1. Avoid unnecessary exposure to UV rays.
2. Wear sunglasses and caps. Bright color clothes are also useful against the rays.
3. Always use sunscreen creams and lotions.
4. Check your birthmarks. Mark all the changes in a diary.
5. Educate yourself and your friends about the dangers of melanoma.
