What Time of Year Should I Have My Moles Checked?

November 16, 2016

Summer may be long gone, but if you haven’t checked for moles yet, you may still be carrying signs of spending too much time out in the summer sun.  Some individuals are more susceptible to moles than others, which means they need to be vigilant about getting them checked out by a doctor.

But when should you get your moles checked out? Is there a specific time of year that’s better than others?

It’s Not Timing That Counts…

It’s important not to restrict yourself to a certain time of year for getting your moles checked out.  Instead, you should be vigilant about any signs that your moles might actually be skin cancer.  These signs can include any of the following:

  • The mole has changed shape;
  • The mole has changed color;
  • The mole has changed size;
  • The mole has an odd or changing texture; and/or
  • A new mole has appeared.

If you’ve seen any of the above signs on your skin, schedule an appointment with Skin Cancer Specialists, P.C. and Aesthetic Center.  Our skin cancer screening process can ensure that any potentially dangerous moles are examined and tested for skin cancers.

At Skin Cancer Specialists, P.C. and Aesthetic Center, we recommend that patients undergo dermatological screenings at least once per year.  Patients should also do monthly self-examinations and track any moles that may have changed in size, color, shape, and/or texture.
