Had a new patient come in for a “pigment” treatment on the chest. 32 year old gal had been tanning all her life. She had some moles all over the body. The pigment area of concern was a “mole”. I said we should send it off to the lab for exam. It came back as melanoma. The only reason she ended up in the doctor’s office was a cosmetic concern. My advice yearly skin exams, no tanning, suncreen and protective clothing. There is no excuse for it.
