Lentigo maligna is an early form of melanoma in which the malignant cells are confined to the tissue of origin, the epidermis, hence it is often reported as 'in situ' melanoma

surgery with a wide excision surgery is the best way to remove the lentigo melanoma from the body.

a dermatology doctor can do this surgery

have you seen a dermatologist yet?

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
