  1. Circle within a circle with dermoscopic grey on a face or neck warrants shave biopsy. Lentigo maligna melanoma

  2. Structureless brown and a pattern of circles. Also some grey color.
    Clues are de color grey and incomplete cirkels.
    Possibly lentigo maligna

  3. A simple case – the dermoscopy experts would likely confidently say this is a solar lentigo, and I would too. However, like everyone else I would do a shave. Easy to do, diagnosis defined, and likely treatment done!
