Today is Melanoma Monday, set aside to raise awareness of the deadly type of skin cancer.   University of Minnesota Health Dermatologist Dr. Lori Fiessinger says Minnesotans in large part need to be especially careful.

Fiessinger says pay attention to your skin and look for moles that may not have defined borders, feature three or more colors, are wider than a pencil eraser, or are change in size and shape over time.
