The proposed study is a pilot and feasibility study designed to develop materials to enhance early detection of melanomas among women at risk to develop melanoma due to indoor tanning, having a family history of melanoma or a personal history of melanoma.
The hypothesis of this study is that women, who are engaged in health promotion by having mammograms, will be able to assess the personal relevance of skin self-examination (SSE), be interested in learning about SSE and able to implement SSE while they are partially disrobed in the privacy of the changing room in the mammogram facility.

Active Comparator: comparator
As women exit the changing are they will be asked if they regularly check their skin for concerning moles
Prior to placing the intervention materials into the changing rooms, 100 eligible subjects will be asked if they regularly check their moles for concerning features. If the response is yes, then they will be asked if they have found concerning moles and what they did next.
Experimental: Improve awareness of checking moles
Posters, brochures, and skin self-examination kits consisting of a ruler, and a lighted magnifying lens will be placed into each of the 8 changing rooms in the mammogram facility.
Behavioral: Improve awareness of checking moles
- Performance of SSE [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ]Checked Moles
- Questionnaire to identify concerning moles [ Time Frame: 2 weeks ]Found Concerning mole
- Management of decision [ Time Frame: 2 weeks ]Made appointment to see a doctor about the mole
