Skin cancer is the most common cancer. The main skin cancers are: squamous cell carcinoma, basal cell carcinoma and melanoma. Melanoma is much less common than the others, but it is more likely to invade nearby tissues and spread throughout the body. For that reason it is important to keep track of the whole skin surface of our body.
The diagnosis of a freckle or spot in your skin that looks suspicious to you must ALWAYS be done by a medical doctor. He/She will be the one eventually diagnosing whether or not you are suffering from melanoma.
It is very important for us all to know well our own skin and all our moles to detect quickly a possible problem to be able to go as soon as possible to a specialist.
A very useful tool that will help us to control our freckles is the rule ABCDE.

These are the aspects you have to control:
A: ASYMMETRY. We must be aware about the fact that our moles must be symmetric and must have a round shape.
B: BORDERS. Pay attention to whether or not the borders of the moles are irregular.
C: COLOR. Color must be homogeneous. It must not show different brown and black tones.
D: DIAMETER. They must not measure more than 6 milimeters.
E: EVOLUTION. We must be sure they do not change the look.
The UV index measures the intensity of the ultraviolet radiation that the earth surface reaches. It offers us an international homogeneous unity of measure and a color code to make the information easier to understand. Thus, a UV index of 1 or 2 is low, and the need to be protected from sun rays is minimum, even non existent. A UV index over 11 is extrene and the measures to adopt must be adequate to prevent sunburns and possible problems.
You must take pictures of your freckles once a month at least. This way you will be able to see clearly their evolution if there is any, and detect possible problems that you should talk to your doctor about.
