If you find a new or unnatural looking mole on your body, use the ABCD method to determine it's severity.
I seem to have developed a strange looking mole...
Since the ABCD method qualifies, you should go to the dermatologist.
Following the ABCD method, I have discovered that it is (A) asymmetrical, (B) has an irregular border, (C) has different colors, and (D) is larger than a pencil eraser.
Whew! You caught the cancer before it has spread. However, the doctor is going to need to perform surgery quickly so that it can't advance to the rest of your body.
Thanks for coming in. Even though you have been diagnosed with stage 1 melanoma, we have caught it early and plan to surgically remove it.
The surgery went great! Now that you are all stitched up and cancer-free, you will receive further instructions in post-op.
Success! The melanoma was removed easily and quickly. Let's get this patient into post-op.
Make sure you use the ointment your doctor prescribes you. This ointment will keep you and your skin healthy and happy and ensure that you don't have any additional problems.
To prevent post-op infection, here is an anti-bacterial ointment to put on your incision site. Apply it daily!
3 months later...
Hooray! Thanks to my precautionary measures and my doctor, I am cancer-free and completely healed of melanoma.
