Having a melanoma increases you chance to develope a second lesion!

In a recent study published in JAMA Dermatologyit is reported that patients with melanoma have a 2-3 times the normal risk of developing another melanoma.  This confirms the need for regular exams in those patients that have had a melanoma in the past.  Although not reviewed in this study, these recommendations probably are also relevant for patients that have had a significantly abnormal mole.

If you have been unlucky to have suffered from melanoma in the past remember to have regular skin exams.
