Should I talk to my doctor about my lentigo maligna melanoma symptoms?

If you notice symptoms of lentigo maligna melanoma, it's best to see your doctor. Symptoms that may suggest lentigo maligna melanoma include large, tan, asymmetrical patches on areas of sun-exposed skin, most often on the fact, neck, and hands. Lentigo maligna melanoma is usually treatable since it usually hasn't spread too much when it first becomes noticeable. However, because it can spread to other parts of the body, it's important to talk to your doctor if you notice any symptoms. You're more likely to have a successful recovery if you treat lentigo maligna melanoma early on in its progression.
