Stay Safe This Summer

Know the ABC of checking your moles;

  • A – Asymmetry, both halves don’t look the same
  • B – Border, the mole has blurred/jagged edges
  • C – Colour, the mole has more than one colour or changed colour
  • D – Diameter, it is increasing in size
  • E – Changes, any changes from size shape or colour

Having one or more of these changes may be harmless. However, Speaking to your GP Surgery as soon as possible will get you the reassurance, advice or referral you may need

Ways to help keep you safe and protect you from the sun;

  • Staying in the shade
  • Avoiding the sun at peak times throughout the day (between 11am and 3pm)
  • Wearing sunglasses to protect your eyes
  • Wearing loose and light clothing to cover you up
  • Wearing sunhats
  • Reapplying suncream regularly throughout the day especially after been in the water
