Know your skin
What does melanoma look like?
Our overview of melanoma pictures includes pictures of moles and other skin lesions, that you can use as a first comparison to any moles you might feel uncomfortable with. The melanoma pictures give you an idea of what melanoma skin cancer can look like. Signs of melanoma can differ in form, color or borders.
These signs are measured below each picture. Other characteristics such as diameter and evolution are not shown, as they are difficult to assess through static images. However, when you check your skin, make sure to check for these signs, too.
As melanoma is the most dangerous type of skin cancer, it is very important to visit a doctor when you feel unsure about a skin lesion. You will notice that all melanoma pictures are quite different from one another, making it harder to detect the disease by only a few pictures.

Frequently asked questions about melanoma pictures
How does melanoma start?
The first melanoma warning signs often are the appearance of a new skin spot or an existing skin lesion that grows or changes in color or shape. You should pay attention to spots that look different from all of the other spots on your skin.
How does melanoma spread?
Melanoma spreads when the tumor’s malignant cells travel through the bloodstream or lymphatic system to other parts of the body such as lymph nodes, tissues or organs.
