  • Malignant Melanoma
    Malignant Melanoma: There are several colors clearly visible in this lesion, consistent with melanoma. There are mottled black areas of the lesion, with central tumor growth that is eroded and less pigmented. (Figure courtesy of the American Academy of Dermatology.)
  • Thick Melanoma
    Thick Melanoma: Thick melanomas (> 4 mm in thickness) tend to have a nodular shape. While this lesion is dark, some thick melanomas may be pale. (Figure courtesy of the Skin Cancer Foundation.)
  • Thin melanoma
    Thin melanomas: Thin melanomas (1 mm or less in thickness) are frequently diagnosed and are considered highly curable. (Figure courtesy of the Skin Cancer Foundation.)

  • Actinic Keratosis
    Actinic Keratosis: Actinic keratosis may present as a dry, rough-textured patch on the skin. (Figure courtesy of the Skin Cancer Foundation.)
  • Basal Cell Carcinoma
    Basal Cell Carcinoma: Basal cell carcinoma is a type of non-melanoma. It begins as a papule and enlarges into a crater. (Figure courtesy of the Skin Cancer Foundation.)
  • Basal Cell Carcinoma
    Basal Cell Carcinoma: Basal cell carcinoma is the most common type of skin cancer and often presents on the face and head. (Figure courtesy of the Skin Cancer Foundation.)
