This year nearly 70,000 Americans will be diagnosed with skin cancer. Take Dr. Oz’s 10 second cancer test to see if you are at risk. But first here are two risk factors:

1. Lighter color hair or eye color (means less melanin)
2. One or more severe sunburns (skin cells get damaged after two burns!)

Ready to take the test? Get a pencil and follow this:

A: Asymmetry (normal moles/spots are symmetrical)
B: Border (should be smooth)
C: Color (should be consistent all over)
D: Diameter (eraser should be able to cover a mole or freckle)
E: Evolution (every year, look at your skin)

If you are concerned about the results of this at-home test, go see a doctor.
