The Pigmented Lesion Clinic is a screening clinic based in the department of dermatology that works in conjunction with the Melanoma/Skin Cancer (Cutaneous Oncology) Program. The clinic provides initial evaluation and follow-up for patients who are at high risk for melanoma, particularly individuals with a large number of atypical moles.Total body photography and/or regional photos of dysplastic moles are taken and used at each visit to identify and track atypical lesions over time. Approaches that utilize photographs of clinically concerning lesions only and/or overview photographs of selected body parts are commonly employed for patients with fewer lesions or more anatomically-restricted atypical melanocytic moles.
