Health Tip of the Day

Watching for Melanoma

Melanoma is a type of skin cancer. Often, the first sign of melanoma is a change in the size, shape, color or feel of an existing mole, according to the National Cancer Institute. If you have any of these signs, see your health care provider:

  • Asymmetry: The shape of half of the mole doesn't match the other.

  • Border: The edges are often ragged, notched, blurred or irregular; the pigment may spread into the surrounding skin.

  • Color: The color is uneven. Shades of black, brown and tan may be present. Areas of white, gray, red, pink or blue also may be seen.

  • Diameter: The size of the mole changes, usually growing larger. Melanomas are usually larger than the eraser of a pencil (a quarter-inch).

 

Living Healthy

Nutrition
Could your diet use a nutritional tune-up? A healthful diet has many benefits and it doesn’t have to be bland and boring. Add color to your plate with fresh fruit and vegetables, choose whole grains and low-fat dairy, and keep an eye on your portion size. Aim for balance, variety, flexibility and moderation.
