This photograph, produced by the Skin Cancer Foundation, and made available by the National Cancer Institute (NCI), depicts a close view of a dermatology patient’s skin surface, revealing the presence of brown pigmented lesion, which was diagnosed as melanoma. This lesion exhibited a heterogeneous, mottled pigmentation, ranging from light tan, to dark brown, and is very asymmetrical, with a highly irregular border. All these characteristics should raise the suspicions of a qualified dermatologist, as to the melanomatous nature of this lesion.
