Patients who have had a visit to a dermatologist for any reason are more likely to self-detect a future melanoma.  It has also been shown that these melanomas tend to be thinner and therefore have a better prognosis than melanomas developing on people who have never seen a dermatologist.

A study published in the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology that these findings held true even if the prior visit to the dermatologist was long ago.

Education obtained at the dermatology appointment may improve early self-detection and having an established dermatologist may facilitate earlier evaluation and treatment.
