In July 1997, Dr June Robinson discussed a 28-year-old woman with fair
skin and multiple moles.1 She discussed the
patient's risk factors for developing malignant melanoma, screening guidelines
and skin self examination, and following patients at risk for developing melanoma.
We asked the patient, Ms G, and her dermatologist, Dr V, to comment on the
year that has passed.
