Every mole or skin spot has a certain color. That in itself does not represent a risk, but that changes when specific colors are involved – or a combination of colors can be seen.

So why is color important?

A mole is usually one color; a shade of brown. When it changes in color or has multiple colors, there could be a risk. When a mole changes and could potentially be dangerous, a number of different shades of brown, tan or black could appear.

A melanoma (the deadliest form of skin cancer) may also become red, white or blue. But if you see a mole turning into a color that is not mentioned here, make sure to have it checked.

Self-check now

The first step to take is to self-check. This is the easiest way to get an instant risk indication of that mole you worry about. Start using the SkinVision app today to take a picture of the mole, and track your skin health over time.
