Dr. Lori Sanford with Julie Dishman, Kiwanis president,

Dr. Lori Sanford, a dermatologist at Hancock Regional Hospital and the VA Medical Center in Indianapolis answered questions about skincare and melanoma. She recommends skin checks and screenings to men over 50, people who use tanning beds a lot, and anyone with a family history of melanoma.
She recommends sunscreen lotion with an SPF of over 30 that is water-resistant and broad-spectrum.
She passed out a skin cancer self-exam guideline with the ABCDE's of melanoma. A is for Asymmetry where one-half a mole is different from the other. B is for border where the mole has an irregular or poorly defined border. C is for color where the mole varies from one area to another, D is for diameter where melanomas are usually greater than 6mm (the size of a pencil eraser). E is for evolving where a mole oir lesion is changing in size, color or shape,
