I look at my moles 3 times every day! It seems to me that they all change!

In this article, we will answer the questions: why do you need an independent examination of moles and how to properly conduct it.
What is a self-examination of moles?

This is when you have looked at all your moles yourself for changes in color, shape or size.

Is it possible to detect melanoma independently, "by eye"?

It is possible and there are such cases, however, these findings are rather an accident than a pattern. Everyone has different knowledge about "dangerous moles". For someone, a black dot on the back of 3x3 mm will be a source of tension. Another person for several years will consider that a multi-colored spot 30x40mm on the stomach "exists from birth and does not change in any way".

✅ So do or not self-examination?

Do! However, you need to understand that the main point of self-examination of moles is to identify only obvious changes in the interval between examinations at the doctor.

✅ Why can't I check myself too often?

It's like losing weight with a loved one - if you live with them, then the weight change goes unnoticed, because you meet every day. If you see a person once every six months, it is immediately noticeable that he has lost or gained weight, because changes in the face and body proportions are immediately noticeable.
So it is with moles - if you look at them every day, the meaning of self-examination is lost, because the changes will be too insignificant to notice them.

✅ Why don't you remember your moles?

You can't remember what a birthmark looked like, for example, 6 months ago. It's impossible. Therefore, trying to remember is absolutely pointless.

For convenient self-examination, we developed the NOTA, so that you can observe moles relying on biophysics, and not "on the eye".
