This week’s case discussion, submitted by Dr Saad Raheem Abed, features a 54-year-old man who presents to clinic with a nodule on his skin. It has been present for over 12 months and has been asymptomatic. It has grown a little over that time but his GP has reassured him on a number of occasions. Concerned, the patient has checked out ‘a mole checking service’ which analysed the picture and recommended that he be seen by a dermatologist.
