Healthy To-Do: Check Your Skin

May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month. Today, take some time out to check your skin for suspicious moles and markings, which could lead to skin cancer.

Put yourself in front of a mirror, naked, and scan your entire body, especially body parts you don't see on a regular basis, like your back. If you'd like a trained eye to examine your skin, the Skin Cancer Foundation is offering free screenings at locations around the country now through September with its Road to Healthy Skin Tour; it is veritable mobile dermatologist office. Check this calendar that has the events listed by state — it will visit more than 80 locations.

If you're not sure what you are looking for, check out these four warning signs for skin cancer, with visual representations of healthy moles versus questionable ones.
