Not cancer is it? Dr. butcher told how to recognize dangerous moles

the TV channel “Russia 1” Dr Alexander Myasnikov told about how to recognize a dangerous mole: she can transform into a melanoma or not? The topic is particularly relevant in the summer, because the ultraviolet rays on the skin – an additional risk factor for cancer.

to Recognize a dangerous mole can be done through a system of “A, B, C, D, E”, said Dr. butcher.

“A” is for asymmetry. “If we divide in half, then some part of it is different,” — says Alexander Myasnikov. This nevus should alert, she is atypical and, therefore, may become malignant.

“In” – Border: it is important to pay attention to the boundary birthmark. Healthy moles they are clear, the sort that can be dangerous – blurred, warns the doctor of butchers.

“C” means color. Malignant nevus, usually unevenly colored. Normal has a solid color.

“D” is the diameter. “Must be 6 mm,” warns the doctor. A mole with a diameter greater than six millimeters may be malignant.

“E” – Evolution, evolution – how quickly it grows. “If it is frozen, it does not grow and does not change the boundaries, does not change color, it speaks against melanoma,” said the doctor butchers.

Atypical nevus may be reborn in melanoma, the doctor said. “We need to go to the doctor. We usually suggest doing a “passport skin” — to photograph a lot of moles”, he said.

Who are exposed to a greater danger of degeneration of moles in melanoma? “If the person is white, if you have light eyes, light hair – this is the phenotype that most often suffers from melanoma,” says Dr. Miasnikov. “So please, it must be removed to do a biopsy and you get rid of it”, — the Counciluet it.

Informed butchers said about implicit causes of pain in the joints, and which allegedly “prohibited” drinks are safe to drink in the heat.
