ABCDE changes: "a" for asymmetry; "b" for irregular or scalloped borders; "c" for multiple colors (shades of brown); "d" for rapidly growing diameter or diameter greater than an eraser head; "e" for evolving mole. If you have a mole with these features, you need to bring it to your dermatologist's attention.

Use ABCD RULE: It's best to see a dermatologist but a good rule of thumb is the abcd guidelines.
