In this week's case discussion by Dr Terry Harvey, we look at a 4x3mm lesion identified on the clavicle of a 40-year-old male during a routine skin check. He was unaware of any lesion in the area.

What do you think of the dermoscopy image? What would you do next?



The lesion was excised, and pathology revealed it to be a nodular and pigmented basal cell carcinoma with clear margins.
