Pigmented Lesion & Melanoma Clinic
The care of cutaneous melanoma patients and individuals with clinical atypical nevi (moles) is primarily managed in the Pigmented Lesion and Melanoma Clinic. This clinic was developed to follow patients at increased risk of melanoma based on mole pattern and family history, as well as to provide an initial evaluation and ongoing surveillance for patients with cutaneous (skin) and more advanced melanoma.
The clinic uses digital mole mapping to assist in early detection of severely atypical moles and cutaneous melanoma. Emphasis is placed on comprehensive patient education about sun protection and awareness of skin changes to aid in the early detection of lesions.

The clinic is located in the 16th floor of the Arkes Family Pavilion.
