What are Lentigo maligna melanoma (LMM) and melanoma?
Lentigo maligna melanoma and melanoma (also known as malignant melanoma) are serious skin cancers. They present as a changing brown/pink/skin coloured patch, changing freckle, changing mole, discolouration under the nail or a new change on an area of skin which was previously normal. The area may even bleed, crust, ooze, be itchy or be painful. LMMs and melanomas present differently in different people and can occur anywhere on the skin including the genitalia so it is important to seek medical assessment promptly if you have any concerns. Most people feel anxious while waiting to see a Dermatologist for the initial assessment and when given the diagnosis of skin cancer go through a range of emotions of sadness, anxiety about their future and the financial security of their loved ones and sometimes even anger. LMMs and melanomas can spread to the lymph nodes and other parts of the body and reduce life expectancy, but the earlier the diagnosis and treatment, the better the long term outcome and prognosis is. Initial treatment is to cut it out and subsequent treatment is dependent on the stage of the cancer. Dermatologists, like Dr Sewell are doctors who have the highest level of training in assessing skin and diagnosing LMMs and melanomas and treating them.
