Melanoma

John L. Bezzant, M.D.

This woman had a melanoma just beneath the left mandibular ridge as shown in the photograph. She was 99 years old, and otherwise in good health. I discussed with the State epidemiologist her likely length of life, and asked them if they felt that removal of this would be indicated. Both of the epidemiologists suggested it be removed. The patient and her family were in agreement with that.
