Do you have risky mole?
Welcome to the ORS self-diagnosis test. Answer the following 7 questions and learn if You have a risky mole or not.
Spotting a mole that is changing, effectively showing any sign of evolution, is one of the most significant steps in early detection of melanoma. However, spotting any sign of evolution doesn’t instantly point to already having a melanoma, yet it’s just a mild alarm “a yellow light“ that leads You to an examination by Your doctor or to a dermoscopy in specialized health facilities that deal with moles.
Sudden growth is spotted as a clear, noticeable spreading of the mole width-wise or it’s vertical rise
The growth of moles in children and youth up to the age of 20, that follows normal natural growth is not what we would call sudden growth.

Leaking, bleeding or crusting are the signs that can be clearly spotted.

However, in both cases, it is a small but clear warning that an event has occurred, and that it needs to be checked out, but nothing more than just that.
