Melanoma. What Does It Look Like?

Updated: Aug 13, 2021

Melanoma can be presented with various colours, sizes, shapes and symptoms. Often they are pigmented, however, occasionally they can be colourless.

Melanoma is not something you can diagnose by just looking at them, even specially trained doctors need to examine the lesion with a special instrument (detmatoscope) to detect abnormal feature.

Attached is a gallery showing some of the melanoma we had encountered.
