Early detection of melanoma is fundamental to reducing melanoma-related mortality. Several melanocytic and non-melanocytic lesions can enter into the differential diagnosis of melanoma. In this practical presentation, Dermatologist Dr Collgros discusses the benefits of dermoscopy and educates on the dermoscopic appearances of a variety of skin tumours. She also discusses the role that total body photography and serial dermoscopy imaging play in diagnosing melanoma.

Relevance to General Practice

Dermoscopy is an essential diagnostic tool that helps differentiate benign lesions from melanoma and other skin cancers and is a crucial skill for GPs to master.
