RE:How often should I get my moles checked?

My sister is a dermatologist and gets this question all the time! She tells patients that if they are completely healthy and have no history of skin cancer, they should come in for an evaluation about once a year. Other than that, she always tells me and my kids that it is important to do routine self-checks. If you find a suspicious mole that has changed color or shape, you should call your dermatologist to schedule an appointment ASAP.
