Melanoma on back*
The 97-year old patient was referred to Dr. Mountcastle by a dermatologist to have a skin lesion on his back looked at and removed. The lesion has been present for a few months and has been oozing and draining fluids since it appeared. Dr. Mountcastle decided to excise the lesion and send it off to pathology. As you can see in the before picture the patient suffers from eczema and that is what is causing the redness around the site in both pictures. The after the picture was taken only a few weeks after surgery and the area will continue to heal over time.More
