The Correct Answer is False.
Skin cancers can show up in many colors, shapes, and sizes.
Basal cell cancers and squamous cell cancers are most often found in areas that get a lot of sun, like the head, neck, and arms, but they can occur anywhere on the body. Look for new growths, spots, bumps, patches, or sores that don’t heal after several weeks.
The most important warning sign for melanoma is a new spot on the skin or a spot that’s changing in size, shape, or color. Another important sign is a spot that looks different from all of the other spots on your skin.
Be sure to show a health care provider any areas on your skin that concern you and ask the provider to look at areas that may be hard for you to see. It’s sometimes hard to tell the difference between skin cancer and an ordinary mole, even for health care providers, so it’s important to show a provider any skin change that you are unsure of.
