This photograph, created by Larry Meyer, and made available by the National Cancer Institute (NCI), depicts a close view of the skin of a dermatology patient, revealing the presence of an asymmetrical, dark-brown-red pigmented lesion, which was diagnosed as melanoma. Note the lesion’s irregular border, hypopigmented central region surrounded by a heterogeneous red, and dark-brown colored border, as well as its large diameter, all features indicative of a possible melanomatous lesion.
