I had a mole removed last week; it was suspect for melanoma. Luckily I just found out it was benign. Everyone should get checked. Age doesn't seem to be a factor, heredity, nor whether you've been sunburned. There's no cure at the moment, all a dermatologist/specialist can do is remove the cancerous tissue and if that's not possible, melanoma can be deadly.

I almost hate to recommend checks because I know I dislike having chunks of skin removed for biopsy, but much better that than the alternatives.

Check yourself today!

You are right we should revise our moles. Hope you're okay.
