VIDEO: Larger lentigo maligna lesions increase risk




ASHEVILLE, N.C. – What are the risk factors for invasive melanoma in patients with lentigo maligna? Size, for one thing, according to Dr. Suzanne M. Olbricht.

In an interview at the annual meeting of the Noah Worcester Dermatological Society, Dr. Olbricht of the Lahey Hospital and Medical Center in Burlington, Mass., reviewed evidence suggesting that the recurrence rate is highest for large lesions. “This is important information that helps us think about the treatments we can use,” she said.

Dr. Olbricht had no financial conflicts to disclose.
