Treatment of skin cancer depends upon the timely detection of abnormal skin lesions.1 Unfortunately, in the early stages of skin cancer, patients lack awareness of symptoms that should motivate them to visit their primary physician or dermatologist. Once patients detect the symptoms of skin cancer, particularly melanoma, it may have metastasized, by which time treatment outcomes are poor and medical costs are high.
