Melanoma detection is the visual overview of the body to screen for change in shape, size or color of a skin growth. A skin biopsy may be required based upon the outcome of the visual overview. When there is a question of skin cancer a pathologist will review the biopsy the dermatologist has taken. After a positive result the Dermatologist will refer the patient to an expert to review treatment options.
