Early recognition is the most effective intervention to improve melanoma mortality. Early diagnosis of melanoma in atypical mole syndrome patients, however, may be challenging. Skin self-examination and periodic physician-based total-body skin examinations are recommended in atypical mole patients but dermoscopy, total-body photography, and digital dermatoscopy have been proved to improve accuracy in early detection of melanoma in these high-risk patients. Digital follow-up in atypical mole syndrome patients allows detection of new lesions and changes in preexisting lesions.
