- Numerous diagnostic modalities and algorithms aid in the diagnosis of melanoma.
- Dermoscopy is a noninvasive tool that allows for increased diagnostic accuracy, an improved benign-to-malignant ratio of biopsied lesions, and earlier detection of melanoma when combined with a naked eye examination.
- Mole monitoring can aid in the detection of melanomas for which dermoscopy fails to show any characteristic features of melanoma.
