In this month's skin cancer update video, Professor Giuseppe Argenziano explores various types of melanoma, including atypically slow-growing melanomas, and best practice for long-term monitoring.

Different types of melanoma do exist in relation to their biological attitude to grow and metastasize. 

In this video, Prof Giuseppe Argenziano shares some fascinating patient cases he has encountered in his own practice. These cases include a patient who presented with a slow-growing melanoma which had been monitored for 10 years with very little growth or change.

Prof Argenziano explores the clinical and dermoscopic characteristics of slow-growing melanomas. Next, he looks at cases of early but fast-growing melanomas, and explores the differential features between the two.

He further discusses when to monitor and when to excise.
