Moles are skin lesions that look benign most of the time. They have different sizes, shapes and colors. It’s important to know that moles can be malignant and this is why so many patients visit their doctor for skin checks annually. Malignant melanoma is the most aggressive type of skin cancer. To recognize melanoma during skin checks, doctors check the ABCDE features of a lesion as explained in the second picture. If you’re not sure whether a mole looks benign or malignant, it is most likely benign, however; you or your doctor can take a picture and monitor your mole, refer back to the picture every 6-12 months, any significant changes in the ABCDE parameters require you to have it checked. In very suspicious-looking moles, biopsies are taken to confirm malignancy and the lesion is removed if the biopsy was positive for melanoma. Recurrence is possible therefore close check-ups are warranted for patients with a personal history of skin cancer. It is important to ask about any family history of melanoma at a YOUNG age as it could indicate a genetic involvement, having melanoma at an older age can occur spontaneously and would be of less importance to the patient’s chance of having melanoma. Protecting the skin from the sun by wearing SPF is imperative! If you have a mole that you’re worried about visit your dermatologist for a skin check، It’s better late than never! #Melanoma#SkinCancer#Malignancy#BCC#SCC#Dermatology#Plastics#biopsy#Sunscreen#SPF#FairSkin#SunProtection#Eucerin#Vichy#Bioderma#larocheposay#HappySkin#HealthySkin

This patient presented with the pictures defect to the 1st webspace of the left hand. The patient had some slight restriction of range of motion (ROM) and sensation was intact to light touch (LTSI). We elected to do a reverse radial forearm flap to reconstruct the defect. We took a piece of the brachioradialis and with time the muscle will atrophy in the webspace and yield a better contour. A certain test must be performed prior to doing this flap. Do you know what it is? Comment below

Admittedly this is the first time we’ve ever done this! This week we kept all our ‘soft plastics’ and put them into one of the special collection bins.
I wasn’t actually even aware this was an option till just recently. At home, we’ve now got 4 bins... 1 for compost materials, 1 for hard plastics, 1 for soft plastics and 1 for general waste items. One of our family goals this year is to really minimise any contribution to waste going to landfill.
Feel free to share any tips you’ve got to help us out!
