New marks on your skin
If you’re in the category of people with freckles and moles on their body, a new mark on your skin is definitely not unusual. However, there are marks that are completely harmless and there are marks that could indicate melanoma, warns Michelle Lee, MD, a plastic surgeon in Beverly Hills, California.
“Signs of melanoma are the ABCD’s: asymmetric border; border edge isn’t smooth; color is uneven; diameter is larger than a pencil eraser; and it’s evolving in size shape or texture,” Lee says.
