Case discussion: How would you treat this patient? [14 October]

Case discussion

This week we have another engaging case. A 75-year-old Caucasian Australian male with a past history of solar keratosis and no previous melanoma or significant personal or family history of melanoma. Previously, he worked only indoors. The patient presented for opinion on a darker area of change in an existing “freckle” on his neck that was present for several years.

How would you respond to this presentation?

We encourage you to participate in the case discussions and submit your own clinical images and questions, so we can all learn together.
