Stand in front of a full-length, well-lit mirror with no clothes on.

Look at the front of you.

Take a hand mirror and look at the back of you.

Look at your underarms, private areas, palms and soles — everywhere.

Know your moles.

Have your partner take a second look.

See a dermatologist every year for a full skin check, or sooner if they find anything that is growing or changing.
